MONTRÉAL – (En français) Canada Post issued three new stamps today honouring three Quebec feminists who played a major role in the fight for equality and social justice.
The stamps feature Léa Roback, Madeleine Parent and Simonne Monet-Chartrand, all born in Montréal, who were lifelong advocates for women’s and workers’ rights and other causes. Their activism foreshadowed many of the advancements made in equality and justice in Canada.
You can learn more about these three Quebec feminists in an extended article in the Canada Post online magazine here.
Designed by Paprika, the stamps feature an archival photograph of each woman. The stamps’ white borders evoke the placards carried at rallies, picket lines and marches. The stamp issue is cancelled in Montréal, where each of these influential women was born. Printed by Lowe-Martin, the stamp issue includes a booklet of six Permanent™ domestic rate stamps and three Official First Day Covers.
The stamps and collectibles are now available at canadapost.ca and postal outlets across Canada.
