The Baby-Strike

Der Gebärstreik

Our society is ageing and the birth rate is steadily going down. In the past 30 years the decline in the birth rate has dramatically increased in all European countries reaching a level that is considered threatening for the survival of society. Experts have long since recognised the causes: It is a family policy that is also supported by parts of the Catholic Church which advocates a conservative, traditional division of roles. This leads many women to go on strike as far as having babies is concerned. Because when career advancement and children become incompatible more and more women choose the career. This documentary describes this ongoing development and uses, amongst others, the Danish example to show how the trend towards fewer children could be reversed through a better range of childcare possibilities for small children and a change in the image of working mothers.
