Women finish the sentence “One day I will …” for inspiring Google doodle

Google did not spare any efforts to celebrate International Women’s Day: For Tuesday’s doodle, the search giant traveled to 13 countries and asked 300 women to share their hopes for the future by completing the sentence “One day I will …”

The video features lots of unknown faces, such as two young girls in San Francisco who say they’ll “play in the Major Leagues” one day, but also has a few guest appearances from icons that include anthropologist Jane Goodall, and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and fellow activist Muzoon Almellehan, who hope to one day “see every girl in school.”

While all women and girls featured in the short movie speak in their native tongues, the team behind the doodle decided not to use subtitles, but rather “illustrate” them with animations, which function as a “universal language.” The makers of the video — Lydia Nichols, Helen Leroux and Liat Ben-Rafael — explained that rather than celebrating the achievements of prominent women in science, civil rights or journalism they wanted to “celebrate the next generation of doodle-worthy women and give a nod to women who were doing amazing things today.”
