In 1936, a group of women met with the Third Assistant Postmaster General to ask for a commemorative stamp honoring the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that granted voting rights to women. The women were reportedly passionate in their commitment, with one allegedly shaking an umbrella in the gentleman’s face and proclaiming, “We must have this stamp. We demand it.”
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt learned of the situation, he authorized the subject by saying, “By all means, authorize the stamp immediately before those ardent ladies reach the White House.”
 
Susan B. Anthony (1820-06)

Susan B. Anthony was selected to be the subject of the women's rights commemorative stamp.  Born the daughter of a Quaker abolitionist in Adams, Massachusetts, Susan B. Anthony devoted her life to the woman’s suffrage movement. Her work paved the way for the passage of the 19th amendment to the Constitution, which finally occurred in 1920.
