Google Doodle For International Women’s Day 2017

Today, in celebration of International Women’s Day, the Google Doodle is a grandmother telling her grandchild a bedtime story about some of history’s pioneering women from all over the world. Some are easily recognizable (for instance Frida Kahlo and Ida Wells) while others aren’t so. There’s Egypt’s first woman pilot Lotifa El Nadi who rebelled against her father and worked at a flying school in exchange for lessons; Turkish archaeologist Halet Cambel who not only was the first Muslim woman to compete in the Olympics but also refused to meet Adolf Hitler; and Lee Tai-Young who was Korea’s first female lawyer, first female judge and founded the first first legal aid center—she went on to advocate for human rights all over the world. This list of women is 13 long and truly inspirational.
