Title: From Baehr v. Lewin to Civil Unions: A Legal Analysis of Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor in the Context of the Same-Sex Marriage Movement from 1993-2011

Abstract: When asked about the same-sex marriage debate, the mind conjures up a series of stereotypical images. It could be for example, the extremist Westboro Baptist Church protesting events with large posters that, in big bold lettering, state that homosexuals will go to hell. It could be the euphoric nature of same-sex couples in Hawaii in 2011 after the passage of civil unions. It could even be the tears, the lost hopes, and the dreams of marriage deferred after the passage of Proposition 8 in California. Whatever the case, these images all share one unique trait: raw emotion, the feeling of dreams being granted in some cases and viciously denied in others.
