Edith Windsor dies at 88Edith Windsor, the New York woman whose successful challenge to a federal law that defined marriage as between one man and one woman helped pave the way for gay marriage nationwide, died on Tuesday at age 88.

Her passing was announced by her wife, Judith Kasen-Windsor, and lawyer Roberta Kaplan, who did not offer a cause of death.

The 2013 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Windsor, which struck down the core of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, was credited with laying the groundwork for the court’s 2015 ruling in another case that legalized same-sex marriage.
