On International Women’s Day today, Google is honouring the efforts of women by highlighting their achievements in diverse fields.

The doodle features a doctor, painter, lawmaker and a scientist among others. Women can also be seen painting, playing a guitar and teaching students in the logo.

The United Nations theme for the International Women’s Day this year is “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!”

Last year, Google celebrated International Women’s Day with a video-based doodle featuring over 100 famous female personalities including Pakistani teen and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai and Bollywood legend Asha Bhonsle. The video featured a single by Belgian artist Marie Daulne playing in the background.

The first recorded celebration for International Women’s Day was on May 3, 1908, in Chicago in United States.

It was celebrated on March 8 for the first time in 1914. But the dates continued to fluctuate till the mid-40’s.
