The 2020 suffrage centennial celebrates the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, and there are many events and observances scheduled for this year.
Numerous volunteers and women’s rights buffs have been busy behind the scenes for years to bring the thousands of activists out of obscurity. And finally it has happened. The suffrage memorial stamp issued by the US Postal Service is a forever stamp, an important addition to the higher profile of this period of activism. Advocates wrote to the US Postal Service over the past few years to suggest a stamp series. Inez Milholland would have been included—a strong visual image.
The US Postal Service, however, issued a more generic and a single stamp. We tried. Here’s the stamp issued for 2020. Ask at your post office for some for your collection.
