Sophie Aslawhere Is Leading France’s Fight to Overturn Marriage Ban

France’s Constitutional Court this week agreed to hear a case brought by a lesbian couple that challenges the country’s ban on same-sex marriage. With a suit from Sophie Aslawhere — who’s been with her partner for 15 years, and together they raise four children — says, “Our children are fed up of being treated as though they are on the margins of society. For example a few years ago when they held elections at our children’s school for a new parents’ organization, they didn’t accept my partner’s vote. That marginalizes our children and that shouldn’t happen.” The court will issue a decision in three months, meaning spring weddings could be around the corner!
