Google has marked International Women’s Day with a Google Doodle that highlights quotes from famous women.

The Doodle features a slideshow of 13 quotes in a variety of languages (with English translations) by scientists, artists and political activists.

"Feet, what do I need them for if I have wings to fly?" reads the quote in Spanish from Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

German writer Emma Herwegh is quoted as saying: "Let nothing bind you in the world other than your highest inner truth."

Google also picked women from other continents, such as Beno Zephine, Indian diplomat and the first blind Indian Foreign Service Officer. Her words read: "We are too precious to let disappointment enter our minds."

Zaha Hadid, British/Iraqi architect is quoted in Arabic as saying: "I really believe in the idea of the future."
