Google Proposes New Emoji Depicting Women In Professional Roles

Posted by at 10:55 am on May 11, 2016

Google has proposed to Unicode, , the organization that oversees the development of emoji, that it include more options representing women in the workplace.

Google argues that “adding 13 new emoji that depict women across a representative sample of professions … will empower young women and better reflect the pivotal roles women play in the world.”

Google created some sample emoji across a range of occupations, including manufacturing, industry, healthcare, technology, business, education, food service, farming, and musician.

Google paired these 13 women emoji with corresponding male emoji to make standardization easier and keep complexity to a minimum.

Google hopes to see Unicode set a path toward accepting and implementing these proposed emoji by the end of the year.
