Unicode, a software company, plans to introduce 51 new cartoon images or emojis for the year 2017.

The new emojis will include a woman wearing a hijab, woman breastfeeding a baby, older adult, a person doing yoga, among others.

The new list of cartoon images or emojis is called as Unicode 10. The list will have 1,724 emojis.

The idea is to replace as many words as possible in text messages with the cartoon images.

With the release of new emojis, our digital language will help represent society and promote inclusion.
