Apple Celebrates Feminism With Islamic Headscarves And Breastfeeding

Apple announced a new suite of emojis Monday to be released later in 2017, including a breastfeeding mother and a Muslim woman wearing a hijab.

The tech giant announced the new characters to celebrate World Emoji Day, adding that the full list of new emoji will be available on iOS, macOS and watchOS later this year. Other additions include a man doing yoga, a T-Rex, and a vomiting smiley-face.

The emojis are just a few of a larger group approved by the Unicode Consortium, a non-profit group that sets global emoji standards, CNN reported Monday.

Apple hopes the new emoji will allow users to “express themselves with greater diversity,” according to the announcement.

Other new emojis include an exploding head, a bearded person, a zebra, a zombie, an elf, a sandwich, a coconut and a smiley face with stars for eyes.
