Equal Ever After - Lynne Featherstone

Image of book cover "Equal Ever After"

29 March 2014 marked an important day in British history. It was the day that same-sex marriage became legal in this country. After decades of campaigning, the day finally arrived when two people of the same sex were able to get married and enjoy the same rights as heterosexual couples.

That same-sex marriage became a reality is largely down to Lynne Featherstone. As Equalities Minister in the coalition government, Featherstone worked tirelessly with activists, lawyers, campaigners and civil servants to achieve a change in the law that would be of epochal importance to the gay community.

This is the story of how the dream of same-sex marriage became a reality.
