The way we date has changed drastically in the last decade, from hookup culture to the advent of dating apps. However, traditional (and gendered) dating etiquette is still alive and well—many women still want men to pay for dates. In the first episode of Thread the Needle, your host Donna Cleveland explores the history of heterosexual dating in America in order to answer the question: can you be a feminist and still want a guy to pick up the tab?
