Wendy Manning leads ASA's review of family structure and children's well-being research for Amicus Brief Filed with U.S. Supreme Court in Same-Sex Marriage Cases.  Professor Manning, Director of the Center for Family & Demographic Research (CFDR) and Co-Director of the National Center for Family and Marriage Research (NCFMR) led an American Sociological Association (ASA) examination of social science evidence about children's well-being in same-sex and heterosexual parenting relationships.  The ASA's review of the literature finds that children fare as well in both types of relationships and thus unsubstantiated fears about same-sex parenting do not justify upholding DOMA and Proposition 8.  The ASA's amicus brief was filed February 28, 2013.
