Irish stamps on Women\’s rights

\"\"Irish postal operator An Post and The National Women’s Council of Ireland are joining forces to celebrate the Centenary of International Women’s Day on March 8th with the issue of two new stamps and a series of specially commissioned postcards, all unveiled at the GPO today.

Women’s Rights is the overall theme for the new stamps by renowned Irish designer Ger Garland celebrating International Women’s Day and the founding of the Irish Women’s Suffrage Federation by Louie Bennett in 1911. A 55c stamp is designed in the style of the suffrage handbills of the early 20th century while a powerful purple presentation of the female symbol adorns an 82c stamp.
