Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA, renowned attorney Roberta Kaplan gives a personal account of her successful argument in favor of this landmark ruling.
Called a "true American hero" by President Bill Clinton, Ms. Kaplan details her experiences and struggles on the front lines of this historic civil rights victory, both inside and out of the courtroom.
