Women on Stamps | All American


Issued on 2 June 1960, it pays tribute to the American Women and to their accomplishments in different areas: Education, Civic Affairs, and Arts & Industry.

Now I wonder if is there any stamp dedicated to "the American man"...

Since I wrote this and this, complaining about the general lack of women on stamps (around the world and, especially, in my country), a lot of stamps depicting women have landed in my mailbox. So, for the new edition of Sunday Stamps-II A to Z, I have decided to keep to this topic, and show some of the stamps I have got on letters and postcards. This is the post for Sunday Stamps II - A.

More women on stamps.

  1. I don't know why, but I don't think that there is a stamp dedicated to the American man...
    This one is beautiful however!

    1. I guess I can suspect why... But this a blog about snail mail, not politics! :)

  2. Interesting that they used a 'generic' woman (and child) for the stamp. Makes you wonder how many women were being honoured and if they ever became well-known.

  3. Hi Eva, I do like that stamp and at least the intentions were good. Of course, here we are, fifty- or sixty-years later and still trying to get things right.
