On Thursday, the SPARK Movement released a pie chart that revealed that over the past three years, the majority of Google Doodles featuring people on Google's homepage were of men. Responding swiftly, Google said they were aware of the issue and hoped to have men and women represented equally in 2014.
In a post on the issue, SPARK's Celeste Montaño wrote that she found it interesting that she and others online were so inspired by the recent Google Doodle of Zora Neale Hurston. She speculated that "maybe it was special because it's one of the few times that the Internet saw Google honor a black woman on its front page. Maybe it was special because it's uncommon for Google to celebrate historical women of color."
