The story of American women is the story of strong, courageous, and persevering women whose challenges to social, political, and economic inequities and other injustices shaped our nation. Todays generation owes them remembrance and honor, for we all stand on their shoulders. They have put their stamp on America, paving the way for us to follow and giving us hope for the future. The theme for the 1999 Womens History Month is Women Putting our Stamp on America. Since our postage stamps honor much of what we hold dear -- our heroes of yesteryear, our legends of the arts and entertainment, our explorers and discoverers -- this document will celebrate the centuries and their women and retell the stories of a special few that have been commemorated with stamps, and who not only made significant contributions to federal service but whose lives changed our world. The women we have highlighted were more than first women to... They were women with exceptional achievements who were outstanding throughout their lives, who were an inspiration to their contemporaries, and who remain inspirational today. They were women who made durable contributions and brought about social change.
