New Female Emojis Set to Encourage Equality

Posted by Emoji Shop on

A new set of female emojis - including farmers, chefs and scientists - has been proposed by a group of Google employees in an effort to promote workplace gender equality.

The 13 new designs were presented to the Unicode Consortium on Tuesday with the hope they will be approved by the end of the year.

Studies show that women under 30 are the most frequent emoji users, however they are severely under represented on our keyboards.

The professions depicted in the proposal are a farmer, a chef, a teacher, an engineer, a technician, a mechanic, a doctor, a surgeon, a scientist, a singer, an academic, an IT worker and an office worker.

What do you think of them? Is this a good idea? Leave a comment and let us know
