Kelli María Korducki discusses her book, Hard to Do: The Surprising Feminist History of Breaking Up, which examines the relatively short history of romantic love, tracing how the myth of economic equality between men and women has transformed the ways women conceive of domestic partnership. With perceptive, reported insights on the ways marriage and divorce are legislated, the rituals of twentieth-century courtship, and contemporary practices for calling it off, Korducki reveals that, for all women, choosing to end a relationship is a radical action. Sponsored by Student Support and Advocacy Center.
