Google International Womens Day Doodle
Google is marking International Women’s Day (March 8th) with a doodle incorporating the female gender sign. 2012 marks 101 years of women and men across the world recognizing and applauding women’s achievements as well as for observing and highlighting gender inequalities and issues. The Doodle replaces their standard search logo with a simple illustration that forms Google’s “G” with the Venus symbol, the female gender sign. The second “o” is a yellow flower, while the first “o” and the “e” are reminiscent of the bindi, a symbol associated with Indian women. We’ve included here Google’s previous doodles for 2011 (linking to the Women for Women’s “Join me on the Bridge” campaign), 2010 (Russia only), 2009 (Eastern Europe), and 2005 (Global).
