Google Doodle for Unsung Feminist Hero Nellie Bly
on 05 May 2015
Google is celebrating the 151st birthday of trailblazing feminist and journalist Nellie Bly (whose real name was Elizabeth Cochrane) with a heartfelt, musical Google Doodle. The animation illustrates the remarkable career of Bly, whose investigative reports uncovered the harsh realities of female factory workers, the brutal conditions of an NYC women's insane asylum and corruption in the Mexican Government. Bly reached international fame after traveling across the world in just 72 days, breaking the previous record of 80. Watch the poignant tribute on Google—complete with a sweet song by Karen O—and learn more about Bly on Time.
