Demografisches Aufmarschgebiet: Von Müttern, Kinderlosen und der „Schuld“ der Emanzipation
Schlagworte:Demographie, Emanzipation, Familienpolitik
The present argument over the „demographical crisis“ in Germany is characterised by only women being considered as potential mothers. Childless women however are accused of selfishly pursuing their careers and are predicted to spend their remaining years alone. Thereby, the gap between those women with children and those without is reinforced. This article examines these ideological formulas, contrasts them with women’s actual attitudes (convictions) and living conditions, and finally raises the question why politically active women remain so conspicuously silent in this discussion.
