Suffrage Stories: The Royal Mail’s Special ‘Votes for Women’ Stamp Issue

For those of you who might be interested in stamp collecting – I’ll just mention that I was commissioned to write the material that accompanies the Royal Mail’s Special ‘Votes for Women’ Stamps – issued on 16 February. My intention was to convey to an audience that probably knows little of the subject a fair slice of suffrage history, giving due prominence to both the suffragists and the suffragettes. I wasn’t involved in selecting the images used on the stamps, but do think they look good, giving a balanced view of the movement.
