Mary Brinton: Gender Equity and Low Fertility in Postindustrial Societies || Radcliffe Institute

In this lecture, Mary C. Brinton explores why fertility has dropped to very low levels in some postindustrial societies and not others. Using original in-depth interviews of young men and women in Japan, Korea, Spain, Sweden, and the United States, Brinton examines how the incomplete gender-role revolution hinders family formation in the postindustrial context.
