Unless your occupation happens to be dancing around in a red dress, then there probably isn't an emoji that represents your career.

 

So, according to Google, there needs to be a greater range of 'professional women' emojis to choose from, representing the diversity of women's careers.

In a presentation to Unicode, the organisation that manages and approves emoji, Google staff explained they wanted to 'increase the representation of women in emoji'.

The Google team have suggested 13 new emoji options, covering professions such as farming, technology and manufacturing.
