Google honored the accomplishments of women throughout history on this year’s International Women’s Day by creating a unique Doodle that was created by artist Sophie Diao.

The doodle shows three different-aged women wrapped in a quilt with progressive symbolism on it. It draws attention to the historical struggle for gender parity and the value of intergenerational knowledge transfer.

The celebration this year is in line with International Women’s Day’s 49th year of UN recognition. The day also honors the first feminist protests, including those that took place in New York City and Saint Petersburg and called for equal pay for equal work, the right to vote, and the capacity to run for public office.

Google’s statement highlights the continued fights for racial and gender pay parity, ending violence against women, and protecting reproductive rights even as it acknowledges the progress accomplished. On International Women’s Day, we are reminded of the need of dismantling obstacles and building a more equal future for all women.

Through her Doodle, Sophie Diao stated that she hoped to evoke the feeling of older women sharing their wisdom. The goal of the artwork is to convey the spirit of these elderly women sharing their insightful stories and experiences.

“My mom’s side of the family is mostly women, so whenever we’d go back to visit family in China, we would spend the entire summer together as a big multi-generational group: my grandma, my four aunts, my four girl cousins, and the numerous old ladies in the village who spent all day cooking food and playing cards. I wanted to capture that cozy, comforting feeling of older generations sharing wisdom and precious quality time with younger folks,” she said.

International Women’s Day, observed annually on March 8, is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of women across various fields. It also aims to bring attention to the global challenges and inequalities that women confront. The United Nations marked the inaugural International Women’s Day on March 8, 1975.
