“Sometime soon — possibly as early as today, and certainly by the end of the month — the Supreme Court will announce its decisions on two cases about same-sex marriage that might very well reframe the way an entire country thinks about the institution. They will do so in large part because of one woman: Edith Windsor, who, at eighty-three, is the plaintiff in a case challenging the federal Defense of Marriage Act.  Below, a link to a slide show featuring important moments in Windsor’s life — not just those before the nation’s highest court but also scenes from the forty-two-year-long love story she shared with her wife, Thea Spyer, who died in 2009.”
