During the late 1960s, artist Judy Chicago acted as a catalyst for feminist art and art education. Politically active as a UCLA student, she designed posters for the NAACP. As she made her name as a serious artist she no longer felt connected to her last name. She decided to change her last name to something independent of being connected to a man by marriage or heritage. Gallery owner Rolf Nelson had nicknamed her "Judy Chicago" because of her strong personality and thick Chicago accent. She decided this would be her new name. By legally changing her surname from the ethnically charged Gerowitz (her married name) to the more neutral Chicago, she freed herself from a certain social identity. Chicago was appalled that her new husband's signature approval was required to change her name legally. To celebrate the name change, she posed for the invitation to her latest exhibition dressed as a boxer. She also posted a banner across the gallery at the 1970 Cal State solo show that read: "Judy Gerowitz hereby divests herself of all names imposed upon her through male social dominance and chooses her own name, Judy Chicago."
