9780061965517 Supreme Court lawyer and political pundit Linda Hirshman details the stunning story of how a resourceful and dedicated minority transformed the notion of American marriage equality and forged a campaign for cultural change that will serve as a model for all future political movements. In the vein of Taylor Branchâ€™s classic Parting of the Waters, Hirshmanâ€™s groundbreaking Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution is the powerful story of a massive shift in American culture. Hirshman offers an insiderâ€™s view of the crucial struggle that is leading to change, incorporating her unique experiences and insights and drawing upon new interviewsâ€”with movement titans such as Frank Kameny and Phyllis Lyon, with next-generation activists such as Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry, and with allies including the likes of New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrandâ€”to create a comprehensive, inspiring history of change in our time.
