Where does 👩- woman emoji come from?

See Next Word

It was a family affair in 2010, when Unicode 6.0 approved the man, girl, boy, baby, and woman emoji.

On some platforms like Apple and Twitter, the default woman emoji has blonde hair. On others, such as Google and Facebook, her hair is brunette. Her default form has an ethnically neutral yellow face, though users can select different skin tones to change the color of her face and hair for their desired representation. Designs give her just a hint of lipstick to add to her grown-up feel.

Don’t confuse her with the girl emoji, who looks like the woman emoji but with her hair pulled into pigtails: 👧.

While the woman emoji is available as a stand-alone emoji, programmers have paired her code with other emoji to create a wide range of female forms of existing emoji, from the woman farmer to woman golfing emoji. For instance, the woman mechanic emoji 👩‍🔧is made up of the woman emoji 👩 and the wrench emoji 👩, which many platforms have morphed into a single emoji, as Emojipedia shows in the screenshot below.

This emoji magic extends to depictions of families and relationships, providing greater diversity than the traditional mother-father or husband-wife configurations.
