Google Doodle International Women's Day 2019: Art and Quotes by Women Adorn Home Page

Google is taking part in International Women's Day by transforming its home page into a beautiful art display of quotes by inspiring women in the form of art also created by women.

The Doodle slideshow featured on the home page Friday was made by women in honor of women and features quotes from 13 pioneering women around the world. The quotes come from architects, astronauts, novelists and more and were transformed into pieces of art by talented women around the globe.

"Today's interactive, slideshow Doodle is told by and made by women," said Google.

The guest Google artists who helped make the doodle are as unique as the women quoted in it. The doodles are even showcased in the native languages of the women who originally said the quotes.

"The process of choosing the 13 quotes was extremely difficult, but we aimed to include a diverse representation of voices on a day which celebrates the past, present, and future community of diverse women around the world," said Google.

Because it's "International" Women's Day, the doodle is displaying on the home page in nearly every country around the world. There are a few where the doodle won't be available, though.
