International Women's Day 2018

A scene from Google's doodle marking International Women's Day

"We are committed to empowering women, across both urban and rural India, by investing in providing access to tools and skill sets required to grow and succeed", Sapna Chadha, Director Marketing (SEA and India) Google, said in a statement. The stories address worldwide women's experiences with love, dreams, careers, identity and other topics in honor of global Women's Day.

As today 8th, March, 2018- An International Women Day, Google has honored females artists with their stories which are quite appealing.

Through an interactive Doodle, Google is also highlighting the voices of 12 artists worldwide who share their personal stories of a moment or event which was impactful in their life. The beautifully illustrated comics talk diverse stories of women coming from different backgrounds. 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.

However, this year's Doodle is different from the ones Google has made so far. International Women's Day is observed on March 8 every year celebrating women and their works.

After a user views a story, a small check mark appears next to it to make it easy to keep track of which stories they've read and which they haven't.
