This Sunday is International Women’s Day, an annual celebration that revolves around the achievements of women around the world. This year’s theme is “Equal for all” and encourages collective cooperation to create a world of gender equality. To celebrate the gathering of women from around the world and for generations, Google on Sunday dedicated its Doodle to the fight for women’s rights. Today’s graffiti is associated with multi-layered 3D paper animation, depicting the history of Women’s Day and its significance to several generations of women.
The hand-folded paper art has 35 characters and three background layers, each representing an era of women’s rights.
The black and white middle layer depicts women around the world from the late 1800s to the late 1930s as a result of the labor movement. The second layer focuses on promoting gender equality and the rapid changes in the status quo of women in the 1950s and 1980s.
The last layer represents the 1990s and so far, demonstrating the progress made by the women’s right-wing movement in the last century and paying tribute to those who have stood up against the cultural and gender roles of the past as they redefined the role of women in society.
But the work is not yet complete and women should continue to push the sport, Google said.
“Today’s women stand in the struggles and sacrifices of past generations, so they have also inherited the legacy of this movement,” Google said in a blog post. “Frustrated by their long-standing oppression and inequality, women became more vocal in the struggle for change at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1908, a group of women marched through the streets of New York City demanding higher wages, shorter working hours and voting rights.
The following year, the first Women’s Day commemorations began across the United States, according to a statement from the American Socialist Party. Until now, the festival is celebrated every year on March 8th, in dozens of countries around the world.
Silicon Valley has been working on gender equality and diversity. In Silicon Valley, women make up only 30 percent of the workforce, and girls face some obstacles in their STEM education, according to the Kapor Center.
Today’s Doodle is a collaboration between two female artists, Marion Willam and Daphne Abderhalden, a Zurich guest animator at Drastik Creative, and Julie, a guest artist from Oslo and London. Wilkinson and Joyrie Horscroft, from Makerie Studio, say the work was inspired by the history of the movement.
“We have drawn a lot of inspiration from the history of International Women’s Day and its humble roots, showing the exponential growth of the women’s movement over the years,” the creators said. “We like to visually represent the ideas of women at each stage, and to describe how their freedom has gradually expanded as movement has evolved, and each of these 35 images has generated a lot of thought. “
“The greatthing we get from art is that it reminds us of how women struggle and develop in history so that we can live a free life today. “Without these women, the world would be very different. “
