So what if a woman takes her husband's name?
It was with a big sigh of rage and tedium that I read Dearbhail McDonald's hackneyed piece 'What price equality if women give up their own names?' (Irish Independent, July 25).
Yes, we are living in a post Brehon Law society but that doesn't mean we are still in a Norman mindset.
I changed my name when I got married because I wanted to. I'm still the same person, but Ms McDonald claims such women are blinded by the sparkle of a diamond and fall into "a gooey vat of patriarchy and male privilege".
