I personally thought the Creeper Move cards were a cheeky, funny way
to try to combat sexism. But I just want to be clear that they were
not an Ada Initiative production. It's funny that people seem to keep
wanting to give us credit for them, though!

For more on their history:

Another +1 for the OPW being a fantastic project.
