  The 15th Anniversary of the Chinese Women's Anti-Aggression League (CWAAL) was on April 17, 1965.Under Madame Chiang Kai-shek's leadership, the CWAAL mobilized Chinese women in a common struggle against communism. Their activities since 1950 have been instrumental in heightening the morale of the troops, in looking after the welfare of military dependents or survivors, and in marshalling strength for our counter-attack and for national recovery in general. Madame Chiang, First Lady of the Republic of China, is not only respected as the leader of Chinese women, but also has won international acclaim. In commemoration of the CWAAL's contribution to the national cause during these years, a set of color stamps was issued, with Madame Chiang Kai-shek's portrait as the central design.
