Google is celebrating International Women’s Day with not one, not two, but 12 Google Doodles.

Wednesday’s main Google Doodle is made up of 12 interactive stories, each representing women artists from around the world who created them. Google’s mission with the visual narratives was to inspire women everywhere to share their own unique stories. 

“Although there are only 12 stories featured on our homepage today, we invite storytellers of all kinds to join us by posting their own personal stories about a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women,” Google wrote in a release.

The illustrations and animations tell inspirational stories of love, identities, homelands, friendship, family, support, and more. And the words featured in the Google Doodles have been translated across more than 80 languages in hopes that readers everywhere will be touched.

After seeing the stories from artists Anna Haifisch, Chihiro Takeuchi, Estelí Meza, Francesca Sanna, Isuri, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, Kaveri Gopalakrishnan, Laerte, Philippa Rice, Saffa Khan, Tillie Walden, and Tunalaya Dunn, you can share your own using the hashtag #HerStoryOurStory.

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8.
