Acknowledging the hard-won Postmistress position achieved by our pioneering women.

Mary Katherine Goddard was an early American publisher and the first American postmistress. She was the first to print the Declaration of Independence with the names of the signatories.

Honourable Mention to Lucy Woolner MacNeill, the maternal grandmother of Lucy Maud Montgomery, who raised her after the death of her mother.

Honourable Mention to British Suffragette Flora Mckinnon Gibson Drummond who did not make the list because, though she had qualified as a Postmistress, was denied entry due to being one inch under a 5'2" requirement, for which she felt discriminated against.
