From How Edith Windsor fell in love, got married, and won a landmark case for *** marriage
A former friend has been advocating the advantages of divorce, contending that it should take a woman no more than two years to get over it. I was intrigued; I seemed to recall that George Bernard Shaw had written on the subject, so I looked it up. Here's what I found: George Bernard Shaw on Marriage, the Oppression of Women, and the Hypocrisies of Monogamy / by Maria Popova “Promiscuity is a product of slavery and not of liberty.” For Charles Darwin, matrimony was the victor of a careful and comical weighing of pros and cons; for Susan Sontag, “an institution committed to the dulling of the feelings”; for Charles and Ray Eames, a fairy tale of creative partnership; for Amelia Earhart, the product of medieval ideals which she was unwilling to endure; for Dan Savage, an institution that desperately needs remoralizing; for Edith Windsor and thousands like her, a cherished human right the denial of which is a death to every personal dignity and the granting of which cause for the highest public celeb ...

2013 Person of the Year runner-up: Edith Windsor, the unlikely activist via
Calling him "The People's Pope," Time Magazine named Pope Francis its Person of the Year for 2013. Time named Pope Francis its 2013 person of the year after nine months of a papacy that has brought accolades from reformers, raised fears among conservatives, and drawn widespread adulation from people around the world for his man-of-the-people ways. Time's other 10 finalists were a mixed crew: President Obama, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, Syria President Bashar Assad, Iran President Hassan Rouhani, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, *** rights activist Edith Windsor and Miley Cyrus -- the pop singer who made "twerking," a lascivious, grinding dance move, a household word.
Message to the media and starting right now - I am not going to read another single word written about Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Chris Brown, the entirety of the Kardashian's, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, Honey Boo Boo, the Real Housewives or anyone else for being famous for being insignificant. I am going to seek out stories on people who are accomplishing things and making a difference like Mahala Yousafzai, Gabrielle Giffords, Steve Jobs, Diana Nyad, Pat Tillman, Antoinette Tuff, Pope Francis, Bill Gates, David Hendrickson, and Edith Windsor. If you can't find something important and substantive to report on, find something else to do because I am sick of hearing it.
Prediction: Edith Windsor will be the most fascinating person on the Barbara Walters special airing tonight!

TIME announced today that Pope Francis was the winner of its Person of the Year award. The final cut consisted of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, LGBT activist Edith Windsor, US Representative Ted Cruz and the runner up Edward Snowden. Pope Francis has done a spectacular job of capturing the headlines...
The following people were the contenders for Time's -person of the year. Bashar al-Assad, President of Syria, Miley Cyrus, singer, Barack Obama, President of the US, Edward Snowden, NSA leaker, Edith Windsor, *** rights activist, Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran, Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, Ted Cruz, Texas senator, Kathleen Sebelius, US Secretary of Health and Human Services, Pope Francis, leader of the Catholic Church~ Okay really??? A Couple of dictators, a snitch who should be taken to Gitmo, throw in a couple American Political figures, and talentless half dress girl, oh and then there is the Pope. I'm wondering Should there even be a debate? A Person of the year should represent goodness, pureness, and free from scandals. well done Time Magazine, Well Done, you chose the correct one. Seriously??? I am not Catholic nor do I follow the Pope, so I am not really applauding the choice, however, should the other choices given take favor, I would have to buy the land on Mars that is going up for sal ...

Edith Windsor vs. Chris Christie. Who should be TIME's Person of the Year?
Domestic Issues *** marriage has largely been a hot topic issue since early last year. So far, 14 states have legalized *** marriage: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maryland, New York, Washington, Maine, California, Delaware, Rhode Island, Minnesota, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia. One of the first legislative moves in legalizing *** marriage came when the house voted to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which banned openly *** men and women from joining the army. A milestone was made on June 26, 2013 when in the case of the United States v Windsor, The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was declared unconstitutional, namely the clause which stated that marriage is to be only between a man and a woman. This decision let same-sex couples have the same marriage benefits as a marriage between a man and a woman. The case was brought upon by Edith Windsor, whose spouse passed away and left everything to Windsor. Because of DOMA, Windsor could not receive any of these things, al ...
No Moral Majority Do you remember the date, January 22, 1973? Roe vs. Wade decision on legalizing abortion. Over 50 million babies murdered. Well remember this date, June 26, 2013 because it will be remembered as the day Marriage died as we know it. Edith Windsor, the 83-year old *** who brought the challenge to a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, is being treated as a rock star and is dancing in the street. The ruling came down Wednesday, June 26th. There was cheering we are told as President Obama left for Africa on a state visit. While in route he called Edie Windsor to congratulate her on her victory and also the same-sex couples who challenged California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriages. Obama said, “The laws of our land are catching up to the fundamental truth that millions of Americans hold in our hearts. When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.” In 2003, just ten years ago, the mi ...

(Ida Mae Astute/ABC) Four years after the death of her wife Thea Clara Spyer, Edith Windsor, the 84 year-old widow whose story led to the fall of the Defense of Marriage Act, was finally able to celebrate the historic moment with her memory. “I looked at her picture and I said ‘Honey it’s done!’” Wi...
Edith Windsor married Thea Spyer in Ontario, Canada in 2007. Edith and Thea were together many years and lived in the State of New York. Time passed, and since New York did not allow marriage between same sex partners, so they traveled to Ontario, Canada to wed. Thea Spyer died in 2009 and left her entire estate to Edith Windsor. Although their Canadian marriage WAS recognized by the laws of the state of New York, when Windsor claimed the federal estate tax exemption for surviving spouses, she was barred from doing so under DOMA. Windsor paid $363,053.00 in estate taxes, and sought a refund from the IRS. Windsor’s case went all the way up to the US Supreme Court. Edith Windsor is a tiny, 83 year old woman. In December, 1995, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery City bus. In 2009, Edith Windsor refused to be denied equal protection under the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution. This past Wednesday, June 26, 2013, at 7:00 AM EST, SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) stru ...

It was tens of thousands of activists, from those at Stonewall in 1969, to those who fought for treatment of individuals living with AIDS alongside ACT UP, to the hero of the day, Edith Windsor. But there's one who deserves special mention above all - his name was Harvey Milk, and he had guts. In 1977, Milk became the first openly *** elected official in the United States. When he ran for office, America wasn't far removed from the time that Joe McCarthy and J. Edgar Hoover were blackmailing and purging homosexuals from the government. Most Americans didn't know or didn't want to know that ...
This goes out with much love and respect to Penny Culltion, a very inspiring teacher and role model to myself and my peers in high school. It was fall of 1995, when I appeared with several of my classmates and other Boston-area teens on, RAP AROUND, a Saturday morning roundtable for teens to discuss issues like racism, pregnancy, AIDS awareness, discrimination, and other issues that affect their lives. The discussion was centered around this: Los Angeles Times: Becomes Target in Lesson on Intolerance : New Hampshire: Penny Culliton assigned books that included homosexual characters to try to balance negative images in other literature, such as 'Catcher in the Rye.' The school board fired her." November 26, 1995|NANCY ROBERTS TROTT | ASSOCIATED PRESS It felt fitting on this day of June 26th, 2013, with inspiring women like Edith Windsor and Senator Wendy Davis in the headlines and seeing we've seen the demise of DOMA, Prop 8, and SB5, to post this video to a teacher who strives to open her students hearts ...
