#2 – Nominate an AAUW Member for a U.S. Postage Stamp:  There have been more than a dozen women involved with AAUW who have appeared on postage stamps. Including Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Frances Perkins, and Rachel Carson. We’d love to see more AAUW women represented on our nation’s postage stamps — so we’ll be choosing one woman from AAUW’s rich history to nominate for a commemorative stamp. We’ll select the winning nominee to propose to the U.S. Postal Service. Voting closes April 30 at 12 p.m. EST. Read more.
