Women in Philately

Join us as we mark the centenary of women having the right to vote in the UK. This exhibition showcases some of the brilliant minds commemorated on a stamp including Emmeline Pankhurst, Marie Curie, Bessie Coleman and Vivien Leigh. Learn about their lives and the women of The Royal Philatelic Society London who are making an impact through their research, publications and exhibitions.
