In 1893, the United States Postal Service issued the first stamp featuring a woman, Queen Isabella I, on the occasion of the Worlds Columbian Exposition, a Worlds Fair held in Chicago honoring Christopher Columbus and those who aided in his achievements. Fourteen years later, on the centennial anniversary of her death, a stamp was issued bearing Martha Washingtons likeness, making her the first American woman so honored. From here, this volume examines more than 200 stamps honoring or commemorating women and womens rights.
