International Women’s Day 2019

Date of Issue : 8 March 2019

Here is a beautiful set of stamps dedicated to all women of the world issued by Gibraltar Post to commemorate International Women's Day ! The stamps focus on this year's theme “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change.” 

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is celebrated annually on March 8, yet the global campaign theme continues all year long to encourage action. The United Nations 2019 theme is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change.” The theme focuses on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Students from Gibraltar took part in a competition creating artworks with their own interpretation of the United Nations 2019 theme. The competition winners were selected by the Ministry of Equality. The winning artworks have been featured on the set of stamps:

1st Place: Eliana Medici - £2.80 stamp
2nd Place: Kiarah Gomez - 80p stamp
3rd Place: Sara Rumford - 64p stamp

The stamps were officially launched by the Honourable Samantha Sacramento MP, Minister for Equality on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019.
