Edith Windsor will enter the history books as a pioneer for gay rights.

She was the woman at the center of the groundbreaking case that led to the Supreme Court decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and clear the way for marriage equality. She sued the government over the estate taxes she had to pay when her partner of over 40 years (whom she had legally married in Canada) died.

Hear Edith Windsor’s story as she’s joined by Roberta Kaplan, her attorney, and the Emmy Award-winning comedian and actress Judy Gold, to discuss the implications her case has on the fight for gay rights in America.
