Birth Strike against China’s Population Policies

This article on China's population policies and women's refusal to serve as birth machines for the CCP's development program first appeared in the Swiss weekly WOZ in German on January 23, 2020. Meanwhile, the 'coronacrisis' has hit (not just) China, and it is unclear whether the scraping of official birth limits will happen this year. The women's struggle against the state's populations policies and for more control over their lives is still on and might even intensify in the face of even more state interference into people's personal lives.
