"There is no one way, or right way, to be a woman," says Tillie Walden, a US-based artist. "I feel like International Women's Day is a celebration of that," she adds. This year, in honor of International Women's Day on March 8, Google created an interactive Doodle featuring female artists – Tille Walden included – from all over the world.
Click through to check out 12 different comic strips written and illustrated by artists from different countries (with subtitles for all languages), each sharing their own stories. "This Doodle aims to celebrate our collective experiences, with all of their commonalities and differences. We want to shine a light on the important and far-reaching impact of everyday women," Google said in a press release.
Along with the images, you can also read each artist reflections on what International Women's Day means to them, as well as what they hope people take away from their stories. They touch on issues such as inequality, immigration, violence against women, prejudice, and more. Their works speak of progress, possibility, love, motherhood, friendship, strength, and so much more. Ahead, you can enjoy each slideshow, and read quotes from the artists to get further insight into their backgrounds and inspirations.
