About the selection procedure for this doodle, Google says, "The process of choosing the thirteen quotes was extremely difficult, but we aimed to include a diverse representation of voices on a day which celebrates the past, present, and future community of diverse women around the world," as mentioned in their Google Doodle bio.

Among the voices — in the form of quotes — that feature in the Google Doodle include the likes of Chimamanda Adichie (Nigerian writer), Millicent Fawcett (British writer and suffragette), Zaha Hadid (British-Iraqi architect), Emma Herwegh (German writer), Dr Mae Jemison (American astronaut and physician), Frida Kahlo (Mexican artist), Mary Kom (Indian boxer), Clarice Lispector (Brazilian novelist), Yoko Ono (Japanese multimedia artist), George Sand (French novelist), Sanmao (China-born Taiwanese writer), Marina Tsvetaeva (Russian poet) and NL Beno Zephine (Indian diplomat).
