    Edith Windsor, Hero Of The Marriage Equality Movement, Dies

    Edith Windsor, the woman synonymous with the fight for LGBT equality in the United States and whose 2013 Supreme Court victory declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, died Tuesday. She was 88 years old.

    Her death was confirmed to the New York Times by her wife, Judith Kasen-Windsor, whom she married in 2016. No cause of death was provided.

    Windsor's lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, told BuzzFeed News Tuesday she died peacefully.

    An extremely successful and career-minded woman, as well as a loving and devoted wife, Windsor would become an unlikely pioneer for LGBT rights late in life. She dedicated those later years to fighting for her own love story to be recognized as equal, bringing the case of United Sates v. Windsor into the history books and setting one of the most influential legal precedents in the fight for marriage equality. Her personal life was inseparable from the cause she fought for so valiantly.

    A true hero. RIP Edith and thoughts are with your family.

    In Your Heart!
    She was quite a good-looking woman! My sincere condolences to the family. May her soul rest in peace. She accomplished so much more than men ever could in her victory on same-sex marriage. She will be long remembered.
    Thanks from HayJenn and Friday13
