7 February 1971 is a historic date, as the Swiss political system finally became a democracy worthy of the name: on this day, Switzerland became one of the last countries to grant women the vote. The stamp marking the 50th anniversary of this decision features Helvetia, the iconic figure of Swiss democracy, casting her vote at the ballot box. The image focuses on this symbolic act. Inspired by the women’s strike movement, the stamp features warm shades of violet. Whenever they use the stamp, senders are taking a stand for equal rights. The association CH2021, a trilingual   information center, was founded as a fitting tribute to the anniversary year. An overview of all events taking place in 2021 can be found at www.ch2021.ch. The website also contains historical and current information on women’s rights.
