Brita Klemetintytär (1621-1700), was a Finnish postmaster.

As the daughter of the former post master of Torneå in Swedish Finland, she was appointed to succeed him by the local authorities upon his death. This was highly unusual for her time: though female post master where fairly common in Sweden-Finland, they were normally widows of the former post masters, not daughters, which makes her position unique.[1]
