World: Today, on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2022, Google Doodle has paid respect to every woman, following different passions, with a series of animated doodles.

The slideshow represented a glimpse of women’s everyday lives and how they are connected with a thread with their families, communities and themselves.

Google Doodle wished the women across the globe and underscored, “This year’s annual International Women’s Day Doodle is an animated slideshow that transports us around the world to offer a glimpse into the everyday lives of women across diverse cultures.”

It further stated, “From a mother working from home to a fashion designer teaching her skills to the next generation, each illustration depicted is connected by the common thread of how women show up for themselves, their communities, and their families.”

“Happy International Women’s Day!” it further mentioned.

International Women’s Day

The world celebrates International Women’s Day on March 8, every year, across the globe. The day is dedicated to women and reminds us that the world is incomplete without the presence of women. The day also highlights that, at present, a lot has been achieved on that front, but there is still a long journey to be covered.

Every year, the day is celebrated under a specific theme, and the theme for 2022 is – “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.

The theme would recognise the contribution of women in the leading changes adopted by women to ensure a sustainable future for all.

On the official website of IWD, the campaign theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is – ‘#BreakTheBias’. It has been designed to promote the “gender-equal world,” free of biased stereotypes and discrimination.

The idea of International Women’s Day was decided in the year 1910; at that time, the date selected was 28th February. But later, the date was changed to March 8 in 1913, and since then, the day has been celebrated every year.
