Marriage equality is a very important issue in our current political arena and it has many consequences for the culture of our society. A number of articles have recently been written about gay marriage in the New York Times. The large number of these articles demonstrates its prominent standing in our culture. Several articles featured the battle of Proposition 8 and its journey to the Supreme Court. Proposition 8 is a law instituted in California that bans same-sex marriage.
The Supreme Court is currently deliberating another important case regarding gender and corporate entities. As the Times notes, "the argument may hinge on the validity of the hotly disputed conclusions of a Chicago sociologist." This one could have a real impact on discrimination cases brought by female employees in particular. See the following article in the NYTimes for the full story and feel free to comment!
