To commemorate International Women’s Day 2020, Google has put up a special mandala doodle reflecting on the history of women’s rights movement since the 1800s.
“The mandala’s black-and-white central layer reflects women around the world during the late 1800s to the 1930s amidst labour movements,” Google explained its special doodle.
“The second layer depicts women from the 1950s to the 1980s, a landmark era in the wake of pushes for gender equality and rapid changes to the status quo,” it added.
“Finally, the outer layer symbolizes women from the 1990s to the present day, in the context of progress made from over 100 years of women’s rights movements. It pays tribute to break barriers from former cultural and gender roles, as women continue to question, reclaim, and redefine ideas about the roles women take on in society,” concluded the tech giant.
The special doodle has been designed by guest illustrators Julie Wilkinson (New York) and Joyanne Horscroft (London) whereas the animation of the 3D mandala has been done by Zurich-based guests animators Marion Willam & Daphne Abderhalden.
