Equal Emojis

Gender-equal emojis are on the way for Apple users.

According to the Huffington Post, the tech innovator announced over 100 new emojis that will be released with this fall’s iOS 10 update.

The new characters, introduced on Monday, Aug. 1, include women portrayed in a variety of professions and activities, shown as athletes, construction workers and even detectives, says the Huffington Post.

Teaming up with the Unicode Consortium to create the new characters, the Huffington Post says that Apple expressed the motivation behind the emojis was to ensure that “emoji characters reflect the diversity of people everywhere.”
