When Donald Trump suggested that Hillary Clinton would not get 5% of the vote without her "woman card," Clinton responded "Deal me in!" Entrepreneur Zach Wahls took it literally. His Kickstarter campaign to fund creation and sales of "The Woman Cards" has already raised $50,000 and the poker decks should be available by the political conventions in July.

Walls picked 13 American women to feature, with Clinton as the Ace and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg as the King. Singer Beyonce is the Queen. Those cards have been designed, but still to come are cards for astronaut Sally Ride, civil rights icon Rosa Parks, Clara Barton, Sylvie Rivera, Amelia Earhart, Harriett Tubman, Mary Cassatt, Susan B. Anthony, Wilma Rudolph, and Ida B. Wells.
