Edith Windsor, LGBTQ and civil rights activist, dies at 88 in Manhattan on Tuesday. After the death of her wife, Thea Spyer, in 2009, Windsor attempted to claim federal tax exemptions on her wife’s estate tax. Since same-sex marriage was not recognized by the federal government under the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Windsor was denied the federal tax exemptions. The Defense of Marriage Act legally defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. At the time, the decision to allow same-sex couples the right to marry was determined on a state-by-state basis. However, even while some states recognized same-sex marriage, the federal government did not. As a result, same-sex couples were not eligible to receive the same federal benefits as heterosexual married couples. Windsor and her wife had a relationship lasting more than 40 years. While they were married in Canada in 2007, their marriage was still not recognized by the U.S. federal government. Windsor argued that because the state of New York recognized her marriage, discrimination by the federal government was unconstitutional. Her case, United States v. Windsor, went to the Supreme Court. On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that DOMA was unconstitutional. […]<div>

Dr. Kate Millett, a groundbreaking feminist writer, artist and activist, died this week in Paris at 82. Millett’s 1970 book Sexual Politics became a cornerstone of the women’s liberation movement. In that text, originally prepared as a doctoral thesis by Millett at Columbia University, she exposed how patriarchy was woven into the fiber of society and its institutions, including philosophy and religion, medicine and science, and even the notion of family. “Every avenue of power within the society,” she wrote, “including the coercive force of the police, is entirely in male hands.” She also explored how the socialization of women impacted their entire lives, coining the term “interior colonization” to describe the “totality of their conditioning” to accept and defend their own subjugation. Millett had been identified and had identified herself as bisexual and a lesbian, and she was a driving force in the push to create a more inclusive women’s liberation movement that allied itself with LGBT liberation. After the release of Sexual Politics, she came out while married to a male sculptor when she was pressed by an audience member at a speaking engagement about her sexuality. “Yes I said yes I am a lesbian,” she wrote later, reflecting on the experience. “It […]<div>
