VIDEO: Google spotlights trans advocates Janet Mock and Cecilia Chung on International Women's Day

For International Women's Day, Google's posted a Doodle that features women on a broad spectrum of locations, ages, and races, speaking different languages, engaging in various activities, and occupying an array of roles.

Included in the montage are two US-based trans advocates: best-selling author Janet Mock and Cecilia Chung, San Francisco Health Commissioner and Senior Strategist at the Transgender Law Center.

Check out the video below:

In January, "Google Zeitgeist | Here's to 2013" recognized a number of LGBT heroes and accomplishments as highlights of the year. On Valentine's Day the following month, the websites's Doodle paid tribute to the love stories of several couples, including that of two gay men.

We're looking forward to finding out what Google has in store next.
