Today marks the one-hundredth International Women's Day and so a very special Google Doodle — a redesigned version of the Google home page logo — has been posted in celebration.

As explained on the Official Google Blog, the day is a celebration the achievements of women around the world. And in order to help with the festivities, Google has teamed up with an organization called  Women for Women International and supported its Join me on the Bridge campaign. 

This campaign involves thousands of people coming together on — you've probably guessed it — bridges and showing their support for women's causes. You can find one of these bridge events near you by checking a handy-dandy map created by Google.

For today, Google Map's guide, Pegman, has been replaced by a more feminine icon.Today

If you're too busy to find a bridge or support a cause, then we suggest you at least call the special women in your life and remind them how important they are to you.

And if you don't even have time for that, then you can just smile a bit while finding directions to wherever you need to be on Google Maps today:

[W]hen you use Google Maps on March 8, you’ll notice that Pegman, Street View’s trusted guide, has a new friend. He invited his colleague Pegwoman to join him on the map today to celebrate International Women’s Day!
