One year ago on September 1, Vermont’s same-sex marriage law went into
effect. By the end of July, 1,044 same-sex marriages had been performed
in Vermont. We discuss the impact of the law
with the president of the Vermont Bar Association, Eileen Blackwood, an
attorney who’s advocated for same-sex marriage.
A legislative commission appointed to look at how Vermont’s courts run, says it’s found at least $1 million in savings, and ways to be more efficient. Also, we hear from an Afghan woman who is working to protect women’s rights.
