Barrington, IL: Center For a Woman's Own Name, 1974. Mixed Editions. Staplebound. 56 pages, 23 x 15.5 cm and 39 pages, 22 x 18 cm. Booklets guiding women who would like to use their own names rather than their ex-husbands' in the 70's. While there were few laws pertaining to the requirement of using or keeping a husband's name (as discussed in the booklet), a woman could face great adversity by choosing to use her own in legalities of ownership, identification, and the like due to the stigma at the time. This book provides a helpful guide to the various steps and levels of name changing, including when, where, and how one must legally get her name changed. Light wear at the corners. Staplebound printed wrappers. Near fine. Item #3040

Price: $40.00
