Throughout history, women have not been well represented in philately. This lack of representation was not limited to membership in stamp clubs and philatelic organizations, women have also been largely left out in advertisements and other forms of marketing. While this lack of inclusion was clearly intentional in the past, little has been done to change the image of philately and make women feel welcomed in the hobby today. Women Who Stamp explores the lack of women in formal philatelic organizations and seeks to empower women to revolutionize the face of philately.
