Women Putting Our Stamp on America: Biographies and Activities for National Women's History Month, March 1999.
National Women's History Project, Windsor, CA.
This booklet, intended for use by educators and by workplace and community organizers, introduces women who have been featured on U.S. postage stamps as well as a few of the women who clearly merit such honor in the future. Postage stamps featuring women have been relatively few and far between and have only skimmed the surface of U.S. women in history. This booklet contains more than 40 biographies of exemplary women, including Jane Addams, Juliette Low, Clara Barton, Rachel Carson, Willa Cather, Amelia Earhart, "Ma" Rainey, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sacajawea, Sojourner Truth, and Mildred "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias. The booklet also contains 12 suggestions for classroom activities and information on how to nominate other U.S. women for commemorative postage stamps. A sample stamp design and a "matching" game also are featured. (BT)
