With people world over celebrating International Women’s Day 2018 on March 8, the search giant is also making this day a special one by celebrating it with 12 interactive doodles that portray the extraordinary lives of everyday women. When you go to today’s homepage, you will find a play button. When you click over, it will show you 12 doodles. Once you select a particular doodle, a story filled with artwork will display. It works like a storybook with users clicking through pages filled with artwork and descriptions.

“Each story represents a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women. While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common. We hope that the combined power of words and images help bring these stories to life in a way that invokes feelings of understanding, empathy, and spirit of the day, said Google.

To create this special doodles for International Women’s Day, Google reached out to 12 female artists of all backgrounds to share their personal stories in a series of visual narratives. The stories have been translated into over 80 languages. For example, the first story, “My Aunt Blossoms, by Esteli Meza,” tells the story of a woman who was stricken with cancer but was able to fight back while Ntsoaki’s Victory, by Karabo Poppy, tells the story of a young girl who was able to take part successfully in a men’s ritual of lion wrestling.

“This project has been an incredible journey for us, and we’ve been moved by the candor, intimacy, and bravery of our contributors’ stories. Translating these works across 80+ languages and sharing them across a global audience means so much to us, and we hope that readers will go about their day feeling as inspired as we do,” said search giant.
