Google proposes 13 new female emojis - 'pressing matter of equality'

A group from Google is asking the makers behind emojis to consider increasing the representation of female professionals in their roster. The female emojis readily available typically show women putting on nailpolish, getting a haircut or dancing, while icons depicting professions or sports are typically portrayed in male form

“Given the fact that women are the most frequent emoji users, and that they span a wide professional spectrum not yet reflected in current emojis, we want to help address this pressing matter of equality,” In the letter, Google said women are gaining visibility and recognition “as never before".

“Isn’t it time that emoji also reflect the reality that women play a key role in every walk of life and in every profession?”

Geezus. There are matters this tiny mind will never have any clue about. One, among many, is the term 'Social Justice Warrior', and this one gets added to the list.

Global climate change is a 'pressing matter'. Thats something worth getting bent about. How, the flying fork, do cartoons for children become a 'pressing matter'?

We is male ignorant about this too strange world at times and admit it being so. Pfffft.
