Last Friday, same-sex marriage became a legal reality in Arizona.

For many gays and lesbians in the state, that result felt like it was a very long time coming considering the actions of other states and municipalities in past years.

So what goes into bringing about major social change? And what's still left to do in the realm of same-sex marriage?

We talked with Madelaine Adelman, associate professor of Justice and Social Inquiry at ASU's School of Social Transformation and Katrina Kimport, assistant professor at the Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of California-San Francisco. She's also the author of "Queering Marriage: Challenging Family Formation in the United States."
