In Women on Stamps: Part 3, we examined women’s role in literature and the arts. These women not only contributed to American culture, but also opened up the arts to future generations of women. Through featuring these women artists and authors on United States postage stamps, the Postal Service honors their contributions.
Women on Stamps: Part 3 is part of a larger featured collection. Past exhibits have focused on women’s political and professional achievements, while Women on Stamps: Part 4 will examine women’s contributions to the performing arts.
