“I am my own muse, I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.” – Frida Kahlo

Who's She? is a 2-player game with similar mechanics to the kid's classic Guess Who? However, in Who's She?, players are trying to guess their opponent's character from a series of extraordinary women in history.


Featuring famous women such as Malala Yousafzai, Frida Kahlo, and Amelia Earhart, questions are less about whether a character is wearing a hat, and instead focuses on accomplishments. Have they won a Nobel prize? Did they make a discovery? Were they ever a spy?


The boards are beautiful and rustically designed, containing quick facts about each female icon underneath their picture. There are also 28 biography cards to choose from, with each one containing important information about that person's life, along with facts, anecdotes, and quotes.


I think this is really cool. As a child, I remember playing Guess Who? and actively avoiding choosing the women because there were so few on the board. If your opponent asked if your character was a woman and they were right, they automatically had a 1 in 5 chance of winning.


Furthermore, even as an adult looking at this game, I didn't know some of these amazing women existed, let alone the outstanding achievements they have accomplished!


I think this is an awesome game which can provide a whole new generation of young people an opportunity to acknowledge, learn about, and be inspired by the female historical heroes who have shaped the world. If I have one criticism, it is that the price tag is a little high (although understandable for the quality). I would love to see a more financially accessible version available in the future.


Who's She? has already tripled its original Kickstarter goal and still has 21 days left until the campaign closes, so interested feminists can back the project here.

Do you believe inclusion in board games is important? Let us know your thoughts!
