A Married Feminist's Dilemma: Last Names
The Feminist Mystique and from two to one are co-hosting a series of blog posts about what people choose to do with their last names upon marriage.
They ran my guest post on my decision today, and I'm really enjoying seeing the other perspectives on this topic. It's amazing how many ways people arrive at different decisions about what to do with their names, and it's also fascinating to see how differently people frame what's at stake. From not wanting to lose academic writing clout, to wanting to make sure children share their parents last names, to not wanting to offend in-laws, choosing a name is complicated business.
