Breach of Promise to Marry: The Real Miss Havishams
February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Speaker: Denise Bates
Investigates the social and cultural history of broken engagements between 1780 -1970 and why the law allowed the person who had been jilted to claim damages from the person who had broken the engagement.
Meet the law that gave nineteenth century women better rights than men, and the women who enforced their rights to sometimes devastating effect.
This meeting will not be recorded.
