    WASHINGTON — A page book about a lawsuit that promised to bring marriage equality to all Americans, but only resulted in restoring marriage equality in California, is a tough sell. Unless the book can claim that the effort was the start of a revolution — and that the man who conceived of that effort is the gay rights movement's Rosa Parks.   The report also zoomed in on how policymakers are mobilizing for this initiative. The leaders of nine countries contributed their own input to document how their administrations have been working toward gender ent Sauli Niinistö of Finland shared how, since , the number of shelters for victims of domestic violence has increased by 67 percent, nearly doubling the shelters. Notes: This book addresses the way that the idea of merit has been miss-applied in the context of higher education. In particular, Guinier examines the way that conventional measures of merit do not predict performance, but do track race and social class, and that beneficiaries of Affirmative Action do out-perform their peers.
