“There never was a time when the love of nationality was more alive than now, and yet a married woman may not choose her nationality in the United States. If she is married to an alien, though he is the enemy of her country, she cannot claim American citizenship. This is working a hardship against the woman of this county who are eager to serve and giving the enemy a decided advantage…President Wilson says: ‘We are a nation mobilized for war.’ Wouldn’t it not be nice at this time to strengthen the weak links in the national chain? Americanize the American woman.”
