Women on Stamps

In honor of National Women's History Month, the National Postal Museum has launched the third and fourth installments of its online exhibit, Women on Stamps

Women on Stamps: Part Three focuses on women who have made significant contributions to the arts and literature. The first part of the online exhibit highlights the accomplishments of female artists, while the second part discusses women in literature.  From journalists such as Ida Tarbell to novelists such as Edith Wharton, these women not only made great contributions to American literature, they also expanded opportunities for future women authors.

Women on Stamps: Part Four highlights contributions to the performing arts and is also divided into two sections. The first section discusses prominent female singers. From gospel music to popular hits, these women have helped shape the musical traditions of America. The second section highlights women that have contributed to the fields of theatre and dance. Whether they are Broadway dancers or iconic movie actresses, these women have had a tremendous influence on the stage and screen.

Visit the Web site today and see the exhibit.
