The first American woman honoured on a USA stamp was, in 1902, Marta Washington,"considered to be the first First Lady of the United States", Wikipedia says.
Since then, there have been some stamps dedicated to first ladies. I have got (on the same postcard!) these two stamps of Eleanor Roosevelt, issued in 1963 and 1984 (there is a third stamp, issued in 1998. See it on Bob's blog):
Other first women on stamps:
First female medical doctor in Germany
|Bertha von Suttner|
First woman solely awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
First Austrian laureate
|Ida B. Wells|
First black woman to be a paid correspondent
for a mainstream white newspaper
First woman member of the presidential Cabinet
(1897 – 1937)
First woman to fly solo across the Atlantic
For the new edition of Sunday Stamps-II A to Z, I have decided to show some of the stamps I have got on letters and postcards, related to one topic: women. This is the post for the letter F.
