Women on Stamps

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 (or women's achievements) have landed in my mailbox.

So, for the second edition of Sunday Stamps-II A to Z, I decided to keep to this topic, and show some of those women stamps I have got on letters and postcards. 

Update (February 2019): I resumed the task for the fourth round!
