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'.

 

'Our proposal is to create a new set of emoji that represents a wide range of professions for women and men with a goal of highlighting the diversity of women's careers and empowering girls everywhere,' they wrote.

It makes sense that women are fairly represented – a recent report found that women use them more frequently than men, with 78% of females regularly adding the little symbols to their messages.

 

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