- ... that in 1929 Rosika Schwimmer (pictured), a woman over 50 and ineligible to serve to defend the country, was denied citizenship by the U.S. Supreme Court for pacifism and became stateless? Source: "She was denied it (citizenship) because she refused to take and oath that she would support the Constitution, if necessary by bearing arms for her country".; "It is agreed that she is qualified for citizenship, except so far as the views …in favor of pacifism… I hardly can see how that is affected by the statement, inasmuch as she is a woman over fifty years of age, and would not be allowed to bear arms if she wanted to." (pp. 72-73); and [https://archive.org/stream/mostdangerouswom00anne_0#page/216/mode/1up "…she was denied American citizenship on the grounds that she 'refused to bear arms', and she died stateless" (p. 216).
