Over the years Google Doodles have honored the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology, and more on their significant dates. For the 2016 International Women's Day, Doodle wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy-women, the girls across the world who will become engineers, educators, and leaders of tomorrow.
So they decided to visit 13 different cities around the world and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence
One day I will...
Then, they made this video.
From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women they met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. 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.
Google Doodle also asked some more familiar figures to participate, including anthropologist Jane Goodall—who wants to discuss the environment with the Pope—and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan, who are working fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school. Despite already impressive accomplishments under their belts, these women continue to dream big.
