International Women's Day: Google doodle celebrates work of 13 remarkable women

March 08 2017

Google's latest doodle is a tribute to all the women on the occasion of International Women’s Day being celebrated on March 8. Instead of the traditional picture/video formats, Google has gone for a creative photo slideshow ofsorts this time, invoking those women who have broken new ground in their field of expertise.

The first slide shows a grandmother narrating a bedtime story to her granddaughter that involves many of the female pioneers and their accomplishments in life. The subsequent slides are portraits of some of these pioneers and their work as we traverse through the imagination of the little girl. The 13 women who have been showcased in the doodle through art are Lotfia ElNadi, Ida B Wells, Ada Lovelace, Sally Ride, Lina Bo Bardi, Cecilia Grierson, Frida Kahlo, Miriam Makeba, Olga Skorokhodova, Halet Cambel, Lee Tai-young, Rukmini Devi Arundale and Suzanne Lenglen. Arundale, the only Indian in the list, was a Bharatanatyam dancer and a choreographer who was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1956.
