International Women's Day 2017 Celebration - Wordwide National Women's Equality Day

International Women's Day is today the 8th March 2017 and Google Doodle decided to Celebrates 13 Inspirational Women for International Women's Day for common good and history. More to come from "A day without women, day without a woman, women's day".

I woke up this morning and logged into my Facebook Account and was greeted with the Women's Day Quote. Sincerely, I this date skipped my mind so I decided to look for searches related to International Women's Day and i surprisingly saw the following; international women's day 2017, international women's day history, international women's day 2016 theme, women's day in India and Nigeria, women's day date, international women's day quotes, international women's day 2017, women's public holidays in Nigeria 2017, mother's day 2017, international women's day dead-pool, national women's equality day, etc.

Now what is women's day? As history has it, the International Women's Day started in the early 1900's when women in New York City (United States) came together with one voice to advocate for reasonable pay for their jobs, a better staff and working conditions, and the right to vote in an election. 

According to Wikipedia, International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. It commemorates the struggle for women's rights. 

Its not surprising that after more than 100 years later, Google Inc. is honoring the day with a Google Doodle that celebrates 13 trailblazing women and their incredible stories of the past.

Google Doodle is prepared a wonderful slideshow format and starts with a bedtime story that a grand mom tells her youngest granddaughter; this is no typical childhood bedtime tale, but instead is the ultimate narrative of 13 truly inspirational women, from all fields, eras, and countries with women who stand up for other women.

From the slideshow seen online, Google begins the story with an American journalist and activist Ida B. Wells and ends it with Suzanne Lenglen, a French tennis star, with appearances in between from a variety of women ranging from Sally Ride, an American astronaut who was the first woman in space, to Mexican painter and activist Frida Kahlo and so on...

This is the list of every woman featured on the International Women's Day Google Doodle below or on Google and Facebook.
