Doodle celebrates 13 history-making women on international women’s day

News Hour:

In honor of International Women’s Day, Google is celebrating 13 different women who have helped shape history.

When a user clicks today’s Google Doodle, they can see a short clip of a little girl asking her grandmother to tell her “the best bedtime story ever.” The grandmother proceeds to tell “the girl the collected tales of 13 remarkable women,” who she then visits in her imagination.

These women include Ida Wells, an American suffragist; Lotfia ElNadi, Egypt’s first pilot; Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist; Linda Bo Bardi, an Italian-born Brazilian architect; Olga Skorokhodova, a Soviet scientist; Miriam Makeba, a South African singer and civil rights activist; Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; Halet Çambel, a Turkish archeologist; Ada Lovelace, an English mathematician; Rukmini Devi Arundale, an Indian dancer; Cecilia Grierson, the first female physician in Argentina to receive a medical degree; Lee Tai-young, Korea’s first female lawyer and judge; and Suzanne Lenglen, a French tennis star.

Though Google notes that not all of the women showcased in the doodle are “household names,” they “each made a mark in her own way.”
