To celebrate International Women’s Day, Google released a video called “#OneDayIWill”, which plays on its search homepage where the Google Doodle usually is.
It opens with young girls in San Francisco saying “one day we will play in the Major League”, and goes on to encompass the dreams and ambitions of women and girls from 13 different cities around the world.
The video was made by Lydia Nichols, Helen Leroux and Liat Ben-Rafael, and featured notable figures as well as ordinary women and girls, including anthropologist Jane Goodall – who says she wants to discuss the environment with Pope Francis – and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai who, with fellow activist Muzoon Almellehan say: “One day we will see every girl in school.”
The makers of the video say: “Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. But for our 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.”
