Female emoji are finally being proposed, and here’s what they look like


Most of the Internet uses emoji. And women and girls use them more than men and boys do. But surprise! Most emoji are either androgynous or male.

Google wants to fix that with new women worker emojis, like these:

female emoji women emoji

The new working women emoji.

Many, many people have been calling for more female emoji for awhile now. Including Michelle Obama.

And lots of girls.

It's actually kind of weird that that working female emoji don't exist.

A lot of people are loving these proposed images.

The team at Google proposing the new female emoji say they will be "empowering." Even better would be closing the gender pay gap. But, you know, one step at a time.
