On the occasion of International Women’s Year (1975), approximately 250 postage stamps were issued all over the world.

The colorful postage stamps cover a wide range of subjects. Among these is of course the peace dove, the official symbol of IWY. Moreover, many well-known paintings featuring women, working women and famous women were portrayed. Inspiring, powerful statements such as ‘peace, development, equality’ were often used.
