Men, take a back seat for now.

In a bid to “highlight the diversity of women’s careers” and also represent the working class women in digital conversations, Google is proposing the inclusion of 13 new emoji that depicts women in various career fields,  These include Technology, Healthcare, and Agriculture. The created emoji have been sent to the Unicode Consortium, a body responsible for standardizing emoji worldwide.

According to the 4-member team in charge of this project:

To make our final selection, we looked at the primary, secondary, and tertiary categories that compose global GDP — Agriculture, Industry and Services — and further broke them down categorically based on global popularity, growth, and overall representation. We additionally added in concepts from popular media campaigns such as #likeagirl, global influencers, and the ongoing support to promote women in STEM.

The team feels that young women would be more inclined to use these emoji, as they are the heaviest users of emoji.

P.S: I intentionally left out the part that states that the working-class men are also represented in these emoji set because I don’t the men spoiling our fun.
