A Celebration to Feminism and Equality

illustrationI AM AComment

Today marks the 171th birthday to Dame Millicent Fawcett, a trail blazer feminist who championed relentlessly for equality and was a leading figure for the woman’s suffrage movement.

Aptly, today's Google Doodles celebrates such a great leading light in feminism, with illustrations on Millicent Fawcett drawn by London based illustrator Pearl Law

In addition to these great illustrations to celebrate this leading lady, Google has setup a website that celebrates 100 Years to Women's Vote, with a webpage titled Road To Equality which is part of Google Arts & Culture.

In the webpage Road to Equality, you will find many enriching information from the history archives and stories of women that champion equality and feminist rights; from voting rights in the Suffragette movement up to including modern day issues such as period poverty.

This is an absolutely wonderful webpage celebrating feminism just like a curated museum online, filled with all the information, news articles and films footages. A must visit site.

The website also includes many selected artwork, graphics and meaningful banners design that were used during the different movements across time, that provides great insight to the typography, graphics and branding used to design for the different movements. 

One section which particularly captures us is Google has set up a section called which defines the movement by colours. Via the "Colour Explorer"  you can explore beyond the purple and green colours one would typically associate with the Suffragette movement, but the full rainbow spectrum of colours that were used in the graphics for various feminist movements.  

We have included below a small carousel of snippets of the interesting plethora of images, categorised by colours, to take a page from history.
