Google celebrates the 101st anniversary of International Women’s Day by changing its logo. Although the doodle is very much different from its interactive Google logo during its 100th anniversary; it was still able to represent women by using various symbols.
The symbol of Venus was used in first “G” of Google and a yellow flower was used as the second letter “O”. Then the Indian symbol “bindi” which is used to represent women was used as the first letter “O” and as the letter “E” too. The doodle was in synced with the colors of Google except that instead of using blue, it was changed into purple. It is known that purple is a color that represents women.
The International Women’s Day first started in March 8, 1911 and was first celebrated in four European countries such as Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Germany. It was only in 1975 when the United Nations began to officially support the event. International Women’s Year was designated on the same year too. This day is considered as a day to show love, respect and appreciation towards women in terms of their achievement and contribution to economy, politics and the society as a whole.
