    LOVE UNITES US: WINNING THE FREEDOM TO MARRY IN AMERICA

    Book ID/图书代码: 12861018C00023

    English Summary/英文概要: Victory may sometimes look like a sudden revolution when, in truth, it rests on years of struggle. The June 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges is a sweeping victory for the freedom to marry, but it was one step in a long process. Love Unites Us is the history of activists’ passion and persistence in the struggle for marriage rights for same-sex couples in the United States, told in the words of those who waged the battle.

    Launching the fight for the freedom to marry was neither an obvious nor an uncontested strategy. To many activists, achieving marriage equality seemed far-fetched, but the skeptics were proved wrong. Proactive arguments in favor of love, family, and commitment were more effective than arguments that focused on rights and the goal of equality at work. Telling the stories of people who loved and cared for one another, in sickness and in health, cut through the antigay noise and moved people—not without backlash and not overnight, but faster than most activists and observers had ever imagined. With compelling stories from leading attorneys and activists including Evan Wolfson, Mary L. Bonauto, Jon W. Davidson, and Paul M. Smith, Love Unites Us explains how gay and lesbian couples achieved the right to marry.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 胜利有时看起来像是一场突如其来的革命,而事实上,它是建立在多年的斗争之上的。奥贝格费尔•霍奇斯案2015年6月的判决是婚姻自由的彻底胜利,但这是漫长过程中的一步。爱把我们团结在一起,这是美国积极分子为争取同性婚姻权利而奋斗的激情和坚持不懈的历史,那些发起这场斗争的人这样说。 发起争取结婚自由的斗争既不是显而易见的策略,也不是毫无争议的策略。对许多活动人士来说,实现婚姻平等似乎遥不可及,但事实证明,持怀疑态度的人错了。积极的支持爱、家庭和承诺的论点比关注权利和工作中平等目标的论点更有效。讲述那些互相关爱的人的故事,无论他们是生病还是健康,他们都能穿过反同性恋的噪音,感动人们——不是没有反抗,也不是在一夜之间,而是比大多数活动人士和观察人士想象的要快。《爱将我们团结在一起》讲述了一些引人入胜的故事,这些故事来自埃文•沃尔夫森、玛丽•邦斯特、乔恩•戴维森和保罗•史密斯等著名律师和活动人士。(WYL)
