IWD 2023: Google Celebrates With ‘Women Supporting Women’ Doodle

Google doodle

Google, a global technology company, commemorated International Women’s Day with a Doodle depicting how women support women in many aspects of their lives.

Women’s Day aims to recognize women’s contributions to society across all sectors, spanning cultural, political, and social barriers, while also spotlighting gender equality, equal pay, and discrimination against women, and wishing for a diverse, egalitarian, and inclusive world.

Every year on March 8, the globe celebrates International Women’s Day, while March is designated as Women’s History Month. The theme of this year is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.”

According to the World Health Organization, the subject aims to highlight the role of innovative technology in promoting gender equality and supporting the health and developmental needs of women and girls.

Doodle marked International Women’s Day today by presenting an animation depicting many ways women help women in honor of the 2023 theme.

Google posted a happy message to women on its social networking platform, along with an image of the Doodle.

It wrote, “Celebrating women who grow and build together, and support each other; today, tomorrow, and every day #GoogleDoodle #IWD2023.”

The Doodle includes animations within each GOOGLE letter that describe different ways women help each other progress and improve their quality of life. It depicts a woman giving a speech as women of all ages look up to her, mothers caring for their children, women marching to change the world, and a woman doctor.

Furthermore, when you click on the Doodle, purple confetti falls on the screen, and women hoist purple flags while wearing wristbands in the same color, representing the suffragettes’ color scheme.

Suffragettes created their own trademark dress colors in 1908 to protest women’s suffrage. Purple, white, and green were among their colors.

Purple was for loyalty and dignity, white for purity, and green for hope. Members were encouraged to wear the colours “as a duty and a privilege.”
