Google has recently Twitted on their Twitter handle account Mexican Writer Emma Godoy's 103rd Birthday-Happy Birthday Emma Godoy!
Google doodle illustrate Mexican writer, poet, psychologist and broadcaster Emma Godoy, who was born on this day in 1918 and used her voice to defend the rights and dignity of the elderly.
Godoy initially received a master's degree in Spanish language and literature. He later earned a PhD in Philosophy from the prestigious National Autonomous University of Mexico, in addition to his studies in Psychology and Education. He was also a literature professor there.
Most of Godoy's life was spent balancing teaching, novel writing, poetry, art criticism, and philosophical essays. His novel rase un hombre Pentafácico won the 1962 Iberian American Prize sponsored by the William Faulkner Foundation.
In 1973 he founded and heads the Association for the Dignity of Old Age, one of the first organizations to advocate for the rights of the elderly. Godoy broadcasts regularly on XEW1 radio in Mexico and continues to spread awareness of his ideas. This prompted the Mexican government to establish the National Institute for the Elderly in 1979. This institution is supported by Emma Godoy's principles and continues to benefit millions of people today.
