Prejudicial aspect of REAL ID law

My experience getting a REAL ID is similar to the experience written about in "One woman's story about getting a REAL ID", but not as extensive.

However, both our experiences point out the prejudicial aspect of this law against women who change their names upon marriage. Perhaps it's time to stop this archaic practice. I am still angry about the time it took trying to get a REAL ID, and I now tell every young woman to never change her name so they won't be treated in this way.
