"It's always an honor to pay tribute to women who have changed the course of history, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles," Google said on its Doodle website. "For this year's International Women's Day, we wanted to celebrate the Doodle-worthy women of the future."

The company filmed women in 13 countries and asked them to complete the sentence, "One day I will..." All told, the team spoke with more than 330 women in San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo.

"I will be the poet whose voice births the new Nigerian," said a woman filmed in Lagos.

"One day I will open my own lab," said another, filmed in London.

Some well-known faces got in on the action as well. Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist who holds the distinction of being the youngest person to have ever won a Nobel Prize, appeared with activist Muzoon Almellehan in a clip shot in London.

"One day we will see every girl in school," Yousafzai says.

In another clip, also shot in London, renowned British primatologist Jane Goodall shared her plans for the future.

"One day I will discuss the environment with Pope Francis," she says.

International Women's Day has been celebrated in some form since the early 1900s and is meant to highlight women's achievements while also emphasizing the need for gender equality.
