Great job on this. I think anything that increases awareness globally of women's accomplishments in society, the media, the globe is great and we need more projects like this overall.

Okay I am obsessed with this app! I had such a fun time clicking around and exploring the different features and women you chose to highlight. The way you display information and tell stories is so innovative and engaging — it really draws me in and makes me want to learn more. I especially loved all of the different media you incorporated: the music, the animations, the filters, and the interactivity (like games). I can tell that you put a lot of thought and heart into this app's design.

I would love to learn more about your design process: where did you start? How did you iterate? What inspired the different features of the app? I'm also so curious about where all of this super interesting information is from.

I truly hope you develop this app — we need more engaging ways to learn about inspiring women in history!

Amazing! I had sooo much fun with this app. The music, the animation, the interactivity, just a great time. I especially loved how the music changed as I journeyed through the app, brilliant. A few places the animated text went a little fast for me. Maybe give the user a button to say when they're ready to move on. I'd also love to see you text this with real users and see what the next iteration is. Overall, great job.
