Google celebrates with interactive Doodle

For International Women's Day, Google created a video with a global appeal.

On International Women’s Day, Google updated its homepage to spotlight females coming together throughout history to fight for gender equality. 

Above the tech giant’s search bar on Sunday is an illustration depicting women from various cultural and workforce backgrounds. If you click on the drawing, you can play an animated video that shows the contributions women have made over the course of history.

One part of Google’s video reflects women from the labor movements (the 1800s to the 1930s). And another point shows women from the 1950s through the 1980s who fought to rapidly change to the status quo.

Part of the clip also represents female figures from the 1990s through today.

“It pays tribute to breaking barriers from former cultural and gender roles, as women continue to question, reclaim, and redefine ideas about the roles women take on in society,” Google said in a press release.

The search giant also released trend data on queries related to the most search for women of the year. 

The most-searched-for woman in music is Taylor Swift. The most-searched-for female athlete is Serena Williams. And Toni Morrison was the top author, Google found. 

For over 10 years, Google has periodically replaced its search page logo with new images and graphics, dubbed “doodles,” to mark special events and anniversaries on Google.com.
