#DeedsNotWords games are inspired by the amazing stories of the Women’s Suffrage Movement in Bristol over a hundred years ago. Click on the markers on the map below to find the games and their designers and the stories of Suffragettes & Suffragists that inspired us.

#DeedsNotWords was a grrrlgames project running workshops across Bristol with girls aged 13+ as part of Bristol Women’s Voices’ Deeds Not Words programme celebrating 100 years since the first women were able to vote in the UK. Deeds Not Words was funded by UK Government Equalities Office.

Through the project we have all learnt about the history of the suffrage movement in Bristol and been inspired, amused and outraged by the exploits of our foremothers, what they got up to and what was done to them. They didn’t teach us these stories in school.
