Google Doodle on March 7, 2018.

On Wednesday, Google shared 12 unique comics, beautifully illustrated by women for International Women’s Day, which lands on Thursday, March 8.

The colorful comics each tell a story by the artists, featuring themes of love, family and loss. Phillipa Rice’s “Trust” tells the tale of a new mother not knowing what she’s doing. “On the Roof” illustrates Kaveri Gopalakrishnan’s love of reading, while “Homeland” by Saffa Khan features the author describing growing up in her home country.

According to Google, each story represents “a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women. While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common.”

The site then encourages others to share their stories by using the hashtag #HerStoryOurStory. Check out all of the doodles here.
