Google Doodle featuring 12 artists from around the world.

Kaveri Gopalakrishnan, an independent comics maker and illustrator from Bengaluru is one of the artists whose work has been featured in the International Women's Day 2018 Google Doodle. "The idea behind #HerStoryOurStory is to showcase these relatable role models to other women, that trigger thinking and provokes them to take a step forward to this exchange of information", Chadha added.

To create the doodle, Google asked each artist to share a specific event in her life that impacted her as a woman.

"While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common", says Google. The doodle was set to grace the search engine's home page in countries on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.

The stories address worldwide women's experiences with love, dreams, careers, identity and other topics in honor of global Women's Day.
