Google Doodle celebrated the International Women’s Day 2017 by featuring 13 “female pioneers.” The doodle shows a short clip of a little girl asking her grandmother to tell her "the best bedtime story ever" before the child gets to know the 13 remarkable women who have helped shape history.

“They pursued a range of professions and passions and hailed from an array of backgrounds and countries. In fact, all of these women have been featured in individual doodles in the past, but often only in their countries of origin. So today we’re taking the opportunity to share their stories with everyone,” Google wrote about the 13 women, adding that not all of the women showcased in the doodle are "household names," but that "each made a mark in her own way."

Here are the 13 women Google honored Wednesday:
