New stamps honour legacy and lasting influence of three Quebec feminists


Stamp issue pays tribute to three activists who fought for women's and workers' rights

MONTRÉAL, Aug. 28, 2023 /CNW/ - 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.

Learn more about these three Quebec feminists in an extended article in the Canada Post online magazine (read).

About the stamp issue

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 Permanenttm domestic rate stamps and three Official First Day Covers.

The stamps and collectibles are now available at canadapost.ca and postal outlets across Canada.
