Google is celebrating the International Women’s Day with a new video doodle. The doodle shows several ‘animated’ distaffs, the women’s gender symbol around a bigger distaff, the second ‘O’ in Google. Click on the play button inside the bigger distaff and here’s what plays.

Google has repeated what it did last year with the video on Women’s Day. This time around we have women from across the world speaking to a camera and talking about being a woman in this day and age. The video gives a glimpse of women and girls from different countries and ageas, across the world wishing everyone on the International Women’s Day in their respective languages.

Puppet wishing in Hindi

Malala Yousafzai – the brave girl who has stood up against Taliban leaders in Pakistan – is featured in the video, greeting women all over the world in Pashto. The video also features Indian singer Asha Bhosle, Australian photographer and women’s advocate Anne Geddes, five-time World Boxing champion Mary Kom from India. The first Filipinas to climb Mount Everest, Noelle Wenceslao, Janet Belarmino and Carina Dayodon, also show up on the clip. Among the several noted women, one will also come across a puppet dressed as a school girl wishing everyone on Women’s Day in Hindi.


The International Women’s day is celebrated on March 8 every year and you can check out the doodle by visiting on your web browser. It’s set to be displayed on the site from March 7 to March 9.
