We may be a day away from International Women’s Day, but Google has already started the celebrations. Today it put up an animated doodle on its homepage celebrating the special day.

On the Google homepage you find different colored Venus symbols (female gender) dancing around above the search bar. The second ‘O’ in the word Google too is a giant Venus symbol with a play button inside. When you hit play, Google shows you a short video, which is a montage of women from around the globe and all walks of life saying, “Happy International Women’s Day” in their respective languages. On the Google homepage you find different colored Venus symbols (female gender) dancing around above the search bar.

The montage also includes some well known women like Dora the Explorer, Malala Yousafzai and Asha Bhosle.

The International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year and the theme of the day is to respect and appreciate women’s achievements. It started out as a socialist political movement in Russia and has since then spread globally. In 1975 the United Nations recognized this day and every year, it comes up with a particular theme for the day. This year, the theme for the day is “Equality for women is progress for all.”
