About Stamp

Canada Post Corporation is saluting the many achievements of Agnes Macphail by issuing a commemorative stamp marking the centennial of her birth. As Canada's first female member of Parliament and a respected public speaker, she devoted much of her energy to rural issues and women's rights. She was a major catalyst in the establishment of the Elizabeth Fry Society of Toronto, an organization which aids women in conflict with the law. She was also deeply committed to disarmament, a cause which took her to Geneva in 1929 as Canada's first woman delegate to the League of Nations. The stamp design by Eskind Waddell, combines a portrait of Agnes Macphail, in the 1930's, with a colourful background collage of the Parliament Buildings.
