Moira Weigel: “Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating” | Talks at Google

Moira Weigel, a Ph.D. candidate at Yale University, joins us for a moderated Q&A to discuss her popular book, Labor of Love The Invention of Dating.

Weigel examines the institution of dating, exposing the unfair gender dynamics it reinforces — and just why it makes so many of us so miserable.
