In 2011, the 100th anniversary of the event, Google had posted an interactive Google Map inviting users to join tens of thousands people on bridges all over the world to show support for women's causes.

Google has doodled the International Women's Day on five previous occasions. First in 2005, then consecutively after a four-year break, from 2009 to 2012. International Women's Day was first celebrated on March 18, 1911 in four European countries - Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The United Nations began officially supporting and sponsoring the event since 1975, the year that was designated as International Women's Year.
