For their 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, Google says, “we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow,” a.k.a. the women you should know of tomorrow. So they “visited 13 cities around the world and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence ‘One Day I Will…'” Then, led by Lydia Nichols, Helene Leroux and Liat Ben-Rafael, they made this inspiring video.
Here’s how Google describes the experience…
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.
We 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.
So go ahead, make our International Women’s Day… finish this sentence, “One day I will…”
