A Redesigned Set Of Emojis For Women
She-moji is the emoji keyboard that celebrates women from all backgrounds
Emojis continue to reign in the world of e-messages. There’ something about those tiny images that speak louder than words. Inspired by the ubiquitous use of emojis, a group of women decided to create She-moji, an emoji keyboard comprised of over 400 emojis of women from diverse cultural backgrounds engaging in different activities and professions.
The founders believe that the standard emoji set puts women in a small box. For example, for female emojis currently available, there is one of a princess. On the other hand, the detective and police officer emojis are males. This is confusing given that the number of females who hold the profession of a princess is significantly smaller than the number of those within law enforcement. Luckily, She-moji provides the option of choosing a girl (from multiple skin tones) as a police officer, doctor and more.
Co-founder Noemie Le Coz explains, “We liked the idea of creating something that spoke to women in a light, but direct way. Something that could spread fast, and act simply, and quite literally, as a mini shout-out to the ladies—wherever, and whoever they may be.“
Gender equality is still far from being achieved in this world. Nonetheless, the She-moji is one product that pushes for fairness in gender representation. These emojis are a significant example of the numerous capabilities of women worldwide.
