Underdog Games, makers of Trekking the National Parks, announces its latest board game today, HerStory. HerStory is a family-friendly game, featuring 120 iconic women of history. The game launches on Amazon this week.

In HerStory, you’re an acclaimed author, writing a book to tell the stories of remarkable women in history. Along the way, you’ll uncover special advantages and powers, all while learning about these iconic women. It’s a beginner-friendly, engine-building game both kids and adults can play. The 120 historic women are featured in beautiful, original artwork from artist Eunice Adeyi.

Fewer than 11 percent of K-12 textbook references are devoted to specific women (Whyy.org / PBS), and 53% of mentions of women’s history fall within the context of domestic roles (Smithsonian).

By introducing players to women who helped shape our world, HerStory seeks to remind everyone that they too can make history. Of the 120 women in the game, 53% are non-white, and roughly 70% are lesser known. In addition, more than 20 women were involved in the making of this game.

A portion of all proceeds for this game will be donated to the Malala Fund to help educate girls around the world.
