Mint Stamps Celebrate the Centennial
Of Women’s Suffrage in Great Britain

Women’s suffrage groups began forming in Great Britain in the mid-1800s.  In 1869, John Stuart Mill was one of the first men to openly publish an essay supporting women’s suffrage and equal rights.  He later submitted a petition to Parliament in support of women’s right to vote. 

Finally, on February 6, 1918, Parliament passed The Representation of the People Act, which gave all men over age 21 the right to vote, regardless of if they owned property.  It also gave women over age 30 who owned land the right to vote.  While this was a major triumph, many suffragettes still wanted equal voting rights.  It would be 10 more years before they gained that right.  On July 2, 1928, Parliament passed the Equal Franchise Act, giving women the right to vote on the same terms as men.

On February 15, 2018, Great Britain issued this set of eight stamps to mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.  The stamps feature photos of British suffragette’s in the years leading up to the passage of The Representation of the People Act.  The stamps come with a nice presentation booklet filled with neat information about each one.  Now you can make this monumental history part of your collection – order your stamps now.
