The eighth sheet of fifteen stamps in the Celebrate the Century Series features subjects from the years 1970-1979.
 
In 1970, a U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that men and women working the same job must receive the same wages. At the time, it was said women were making 59¢ for each dollar men were making. 
 
Ms Magazine was first published in 1971 and sold out in eight days. The editor, Gloria Steinem was a vocal advocate for the feminist movement.
 
The Equal Rights Amendment passed Congress on March 22, 1972. The amendment was not ratified by at least 38 states, so it did not become part of the constitution. The same year, Title IX of the Education Amendments banned sex discrimination in schools. Many colleges and athletic programs were accessible to women for the first time.
