Millicent Garrett Fawcett (June 11, 1847 - August 5, 1929) spent a major part of her life campaigning for the right of women to vote. She helped to form the National Union of Women Suffrage Societies and became its president in 1907. She worked through political pressure rather than joining in the loud public marches of the time. Women first participated in the election of December 1918.



(Hi, Primoz, I'm glad they arrived safely!)

Baroness Barbara Anne Castle (6th of October 1910 - 3rd of May 2002) served as a Labor member of the British Parliament from 1945 to 1979, and then another ten years as a member of the European Parliament. Among her many accomplishments the Equal Pay Act of 1970 is associated with her name. England still does not rank among the top 20 countries providing equal pay for men and women.

Happy Birthday to Alice Hamilton (1869-1970), an American physician who was a pioneer in the field of toxicology, a leading expert in the field of occupational health, and a social reformer. Here are images of a first day cover and a stamp featuring a portrait of Dr. Hamilton, designed by Chris Calle, engraved by Richard Baratz, and issued by the USA on July 11, 1995 as a stamp in the "Great Americans" series, Scott No. 2940, plus a photograph of Alice Hamilton which was surely the model for this stamp's design.

Marie Carmichael Stopes (15th of October, 1880 - 2nd of October 1958) spent much of her life educating women about family planning. Her early accomplishments as a paleobotanist, and one of the first women to receive a doctors degree (1904) in a field of science are less well known. The Marie Stopes International organization has clinics for family planning in more than 40 countries today.

My wife just commented that Imelda Marcos was more 'infamous' than 'famous'.

Jadwiga, the youngest daughter of Louis I of Hungary and of Elizabeth of Bosnia, was crowned KING of Poland on 16 October 1384 & died on 17 July 1399 after having given birth to a daughter. Queens who reigned in their own right were uncommon in Europe at the time so she was officially crowned a king rather than queen.

She is an important link in the transition of the Polish monarchy from the old House of Piast to the Jagiellon dynasty which was Lithuanian in origin.




With her husband King Jagiello
