Google Celebrates Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti Who Would Have Clocks 119 Today

   Google Doodle celebrates Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti who would have celebrated her 119th birthday today
Popular search engine platform, Google, changed its logo into a Doodle in honour of Late Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, a teacher, women’s rights activist, political campaigner, and aristocrat, who would have turned 119 today.
 She was also the first female Nigerian to drive a car.

Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepages to mark important festivals, holidays, events, achievements, and notable historical figures.  

Ransome-Kuti’s doodle was illustrated by Nigerian-Italian artist, Diana Ejaita, which portrays a strong leader who pioneered one of the most formidable social movements of the twentieth century.  

Ransome-Kuti, who was born on the 25th of October, 1900, in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state, is one of the most prominent figures in Nigerian history who paved the way for women in the country to have better lives.
