Gay rights have come a long way in America. From the Stonewall uprising in 60s Greenwich Village — where gay patrons refused to leave a bar raided by police — to Obama's historic declaration supporting same sex marriage last month, gay causes have moved from the underground to the front page. What was once considered something to hide is now a source of pride for many Americans.

Attorney, pundit and author Linda Hirshman discusses this and more in her new book "Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution." The gay rights movement, she says, is the most successful social movement of the last four decades.
