Sexism exists everywhere, including our Emoji keyboard. Take a look now and you’ll see how men are shown as professional policemen, construction workers, and detectives. Scroll through the women’s emoji and you’ll see a princess, a bride, and a dancer. See any differences?
That’s why in May Google proposed new emojis to Unicode, and now their Emoji Subcommittee has finally agreed to 11 new professional emojis that will have * gasp * male AND female options. Right in time for World Emoji Day this weekend.
The professions will be rock-star, teacher, student, chef, business worker, coder, scientist, health worker, mechanic, welder, and farmer.
Apart from that they will also be adding male/female versions to already existing emojis, so now both genders will be able to be get a haircut and be represented as runners and police officers. #WIN !
