Here’s how Google is celebrating International Women’s Day this year

In honor of International Women's Day on March 8, Google is swapping out its usual rainbow-colored search page logo in order to celebrate the work of 12 female artists from around the world through interactive Doodles.

Each artist shared a personal story through a series of visual narratives that represent “a moment, person or event that has impacted their lives as women,” according to a Google blog post, while also conveying universal themes of womanhood.

“We hope that the combined power of words and images help bring these stories to life in a way that invokes feelings of understanding, empathy and spirit of the day,” wrote Lydia Nichols and Alyssa Winans, Google’s project leads for International Women’s Day, in the post.
