In the doodle, the Google logo features a play button in the second 'O' of the logo, which also depicts the Venus symbol for women. A YouTube video opens up as you hit the play button.

The doodle marks the day by showing over 100 women from all corners of the globe in an 80 second video. Some of the women featured include prominent figures such as Malala Yousafzai and singer Asha Bhonsle.

The video also features the new single by Belgian artiste Marie Daulne, who is also known by her on-stage name Zap Mama, playing in the background.
International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 every year to mark the achievements of women and to appreciate their contribution to the world.
