Canada Issued Stamp on Womens Day

canada womens day stampCanada Post has released a stamp on 8th March 2016 to celebrate many remarkable women .The stamp nondenominated (85¢) domestic letter-rate “P” permanent booklet stamp mark the 100th anniversary of milestones in the achievement of political equality for Canadian women .The new stamp was issued in Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital, with its simple message “VOTE” in black and gold, using the ages-old Venus/Aphrodite symbol for womanhood to form the “O” and “T.” It’s a striking and a clever design, but for me, it lacks a human touch.
