The Litigation, Politics And PR Battle Over Proposition 8

Tuesday, April 24, 2014






Jo Becker, Pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter at The New York Times and author of "Forcing the Spring," makes sense of the entangled web of courts, politics, and public relations in our nation. She speaks with Laura Weber Davis and Travis Wright about her new book and why she chose to narrate this particular moment in marriage rights history.

In her book, Becker breaks down the events surrounding California's Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage in 2008. She takes the reader into the personal lives of the lawyers and litigants involved in the disputes.
