This critical commentary presents short essays by three major scholars of sociology, law, critical race theory, and feminist studies—Patricia J. Williams, Mignon Moore, and Kendall Thomas—responding to and engaging with Katherine Franke’s 2015 monograph Wedlocked: The Perils of Marriage Equality. These papers were originally presented at a panel discussion on Franke’s book, hosted by Columbia Law School in November 2015 and filmed as part of C-SPAN’s Book-TV series. Each essay has been revised and expanded specifically for this special issue of differences.
