March 8 marks International Women's Day, when the plight and achievements of women around the world are celebrated.
Google makes video to celebrate 'International Women's Day 2016'
To celebrate International Women's Day, Google made a video titled #OneDayIWill, to celebrate the achievements of women in political, social, economic and cultural space.
Opening with a pair of girls in San Francisco saying "one day we will play in the Major League", the video sees women and girls from 13 different cities around the world completing the sentence "one day I will...".
The video features notable figures, including anthropologist Jane Goodall – who says she wants to discuss the environment with Pope Francis – and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Talbian for her campaigning for girls' education in Pakistan.
Malala and fellow activist Muzoon Almellehan say: "One day we will see every girl in school."
Writing on their YouTube page, the makers of the video Lydia Nichols, Helen Leroux and Liat Ben-Rafael say: "Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond.
But for our 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.
"From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women we met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. And their aspirations are just as varied—ranging from the global to the very personal, from discovering more digits of pi to becoming a mother to giving a voice to those who can’t speak. "
