Sunday Stamps 70 - votes for women

Well unfortunately I don't seem to have any stamps which specifically refer to Mother's Day (plus it's not actually Mother's Day here in the UK today ... ours is in March) but as the theme on this week's Sunday Stamps was extended to cover, amongst other things, women's rights, I have featured this stamp from 1968 commemorating 50 years of women having the vote. It shows the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst, which is in Victoria Tower Gardens, London SW1.

Votes for Women, commemorative stamp, c.1968

  1. A simple, but effective stamp. I didn't know she had a statue in London.

  2. Only since 1918 .... not even 100 years yet. The women of this movement should be known better. Thank you for joining in!

  3. I should have read the theme fully. I stopped at Mothers' Day!
    This is a good example of where a designer has hit the mark, everything's right about it.

  4. I like the design too. Seeing the Queen in the corner made me wonder whether she votes.
