The global interactive features have been translated into more than 80 different languages, according to Google.

A well-known Pretoria-based illustrator, graphic designer and street artist, Moletsane's work can be seen locally at the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto and the community basketball courts at Zoo Lake.

When users click on the play button of the doodle they are shown thumbnails for each story available to them and can choose the story that's most appealing to them.

"This year, we wanted to bring forward unheard stories and voices, and to celebrate women's collective experiences with all of their commonalities and differences".

Google's doodle for International Women's Day 2018.

Google has reached out to 12 female artists of all backgrounds to share their personal stories in a series of visual narratives.

However, later on March 8, 1917, Women's Day demonstration sparked the Russian Revolution and the day was eventually declared as national holiday in Russia in 1965.

Google adds that although there are only 12 stories featured as part of its doodle today, it is spreading the message with #HerStoryOurStory hashtag.

In 1977, the United Nations adopted March 8 as the International Women's Day and since then it celebrates women's rights and world peace.

Google is celebrating International Women's Day by featuring doodles of 12 female artists, including a British-Pakistani, on its homepage.

Google also highlighted its Womenwill initiative which helps create economic opportunities for women through digital skills like website creation, social media or putting a business on the map.

The colors purple, green and yellow are frequently used in association with International Women's Day. Yellow now represents a "new dawn" or the second wave of feminism, according to the International Women's Day website.
