“[On being requested to apply for a passport using her husband's name:] Mr. Secretary: Will you kindly have issued to me a passport under my own name. There is no law compelling a woman to use any but her own name, and I have never done so. Since it is apparent that the purpose of a passport is to establish identity, I assume you will not wish me to travel under a false name.”
Doris Fleischman, U.S. public relations executive feminist activist
(1891 - 1980)
Full name: Doris Elsa Fleischman Bernays.
