Google proposes professional women emojis

Soon, you might be able to text with a while new set of emojis that will put the focus of the conversation on your career.

Google has designed a new set of emojis depicting professional women to highlight “the diversity of women’s careers’ and combat sexism.

A group of Google employees are proposing a new set of emojis. All the proposed designs were presented as female, but the group noted they also wanted to create the corresponding male emoji, too.

Still, if approved, this would be a big step toward including more diversity in the emoji currently available. In the proposal, the Google employees advise Unicode to not make the suggested new designs gender-neutral, but instead keep improving diversity by having both men and women.

The only emoji profession that's portrayed as specifically female is the salsa dancer.
