Sharing her thought thoughts behind the making of International Women's Day 2022 Doodle, Maer said: "Life during the pandemic. The last couple of years have been hard for everyone but women especially. We usually celebrate women and their incredible accomplishments in the past and present, and inspire young girls to dream big. The reality of the last couple of years has forced women to shift focus, adjust priorities and make sacrifices to be there for others who need them."
''I really hope that women feel seen and valued for whatever they've been doing and are doing right now. Getting up in the morning and getting through the day. Doing the dishes, holding on to the job or letting go of it, taking care of themselves and others. Those very basic things have been a huge piece of work since the beginning of the pandemic,'' she further said.
''I want all women to be able to truly choose the lives they want to live and receive all the respect they deserve. A stay at home mom makes the whole world for her children. A CEO makes for innovation and keeps her employees motivated and happy. The vagabond artist delights strangers and indulges in her freedom. Driving a truck, fighting for women's rights, going to school, or making a meal. We all wake up in the morning and we all have a purpose, big or small. It all matters.'' Maer said
International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8, all over the world. The day commemorates the achievements of women and their existence in general. International Women's Day is observed as a public holiday across the world and it holds more significance than just being a day to unveil women's day offers in parlours and shopping centres. This year, the theme of Women's Day is #BreakTheBias. The theme highlights the importance of a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
