Women in the U.S. Postal System
Women in Postal History
America’s postal system has evolved from one in which women were rarely seen or heard to one in which women are a critical part of the service. The 21st century finds women in many executive positions across the service. Throughout the service women carry, sort and process mail; investigate mail crimes, serve as postmasters and window clerks in growing numbers. And finally, in 2015, a woman, Megan Brennan, was named as the nation’s Postmaster General.
