In honour of women who have made a difference through the years, Google is giving a ‘big hand’ to honour this year’s international women’s day.
The tech giant is celebrating the annual celebration today with an animated doodle that highlights women’s “firsts” in history.
In the past year, “the first woman” was searched more than ever. For #WomensHistoryMonth, we’re celebrating the firsts and the many they inspire. See more firsts and learn about Google’s commitments to gender equality at https://t.co/YsRtsmgLhN #FirstOfMany pic.twitter.com/9611KiNHD4

The Google doodle shows images of ‘raised hands’ which according to the tech giant symbolises hands that opened the doors for women today, including those of the first women to cast a vote and other activists.
