Google’s design team has created a new set of emojis that focuses on professional women to highlight “the diversity of women’s careers” and combat sexism.
The tech giant has proposed 13 emojis that show women in various jobs including health care, science, education, farming, and construction.
The company has also proposed 13 emojis that depict men in the same roles.
Google hopes to have the emojis included on smartphones and computers by the end of the year. The company says they will “empower girls everywhere.”
There are already over 1,000 standardized emojis used all over the world.
Google argues that many of those emojis which show men at work and women cutting their hair are sexist.
Here’s the newly proposed emojis.
“Given the fact that women are the most frequent emoji users, and that they span a wide professional spectrum not yet reflected in current emoji, we want to help address this pressing matter of equality,” Google said in its proposal.
Google has already submitted its proposal to the Unicode Consortium, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating standardized emojis and text characters that are used across different platforms by the likes of Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and others.
