Prof. Joanna Grossman Interviewed on NPR About Supreme Court Arguments on Same-Sex Marriage

Joanna L. Grossman, Sidney and Walter Siben Distinguished Professor of Family Law and Hofstra Research Fellow

On April 29, 2015, Joanna L. Grossman, the Sidney and Walter Siben Distinguished Professor of Family Law, appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered to discuss the Supreme Court arguments on same-sex marriage the day before.

Host Robert Siegel framed the interview in his introduction: “Listening to the Supreme Court arguments on same-sex marriage yesterday had to make you wonder. When advocates and justices talked about marriage and the family, was it marriage and the family 21st century-style or the gauzy nostalgia of the kind of family Dick and Jane grew up in long ago?”

In responding to Siegel’s questions, Professor Grossman explained why the arguments reflected outdated ideas about family formation.
