Today Google paid homage to Mexican writer Rosario Castellanos, in honor of the 91th anniversary of the birth of one of Mexico’s great cultural figures, whose work gave voice to women, especially the poor and the indigenous people of Mexico.

The internet company’s doodle shows Rosario Castellanos serenely gazing at the moon, as the orb replaces one of the O’s in the search Google search engine.

Born on May 25, 1925, Castellanos excelled as a poet, novelist, short story writer and essayist. She is also credited as being one of Mexico’s first and greatest feminists, notably through her doctoral thesis “On Feminine Culture” and the critique of gender roles present in her work.

Castellanos died in an accident on August 7, 1974, in Israel, where she had been appointed ambassador since 1971.

Among her outstanding works translated into English are her novels “Balún-Canán” (“The Nine Guardians”) “Oficio de Tinieblas” (The Book of Lamentations”), or the short story collection “Ciudad Real” (“City of Kings”).
