when I married, I kept my own name — but really it was my father’s name..

here’s something that’s always pissed me off.

the way family histories focus on the male line.

the way women get to trade (usually) their father’s name for their (usually) male partner’s name. I mean, what a choice…

someone must have done some writing on this but I’ve never come across it. how could this be made less sexist?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
