Google’s Doodle ‘1 DAY I WILL’ celebrates International Women’s Day

Ellen DeGeneres, Michelle Obama and Whoopi Goldberg

support Google #OneDayIWill campaign.

Google would like women around the world to share their own dreams supporting International Women’s Day.

The company has created a hashtag, #OneDayIWill and asked that women and girls write what they want to achieve. The initiative is gaining momentum, with Ellen DeGeneres, Michelle Obama and Whoopi Goldberg posting the hashtag on their own Twitter accounts.

Google has made doodles to celebrate major days and achievements in the past. For International Women’s Day, the company wanted to celebrate the next generation of doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders and movers and shakers of tomorrow.

Google visited 13 cities around the world and asked 337 women to complete the sentence “One Day I Will”, then compiled the results into a video shown upon clicking on the Google Doodle.

The women 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 are unable to speak.

Familiar people also participated, including anthropologist Jane Goodall, wanted to discuss the environment with the Pope, and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan
