Background sentenceBirth rates across the world have plummeted at a terrifying rate over the past few decades.Rephrase the topicMany people no longer regard marriage and family as the apex of personal achievement with singletons and single parent families more pervasive than ever.Attitude or personal opinionThe consequences of this have been profound and cannot be considered in black and white terms。
One of the main causes of this development relates to the Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1970s.This movement is driven by radical feminists seeking to achieve gender equality in society, specifically in the workplace。As a consequence of these achievements, many women no longer see their sole function in society as breeders and mothers.They seek careers in their own right and increasingly women now out-earn men in many industries.Of course, this has been a positive development, but the caveat is that many women no longer want to have children and so pursue careers instead.
This development has led to a decline in birth rates.The consequence of this is declining birth rates, which has led to a serious demographic problem。It is estimated that in the not too distant future，the elderly population will outnumber the young.This will lead to a health and social care crisis that can only be resolved by increasing taxation for the younger generation, or putting the onus of care on the elderly, forcing them to take their own provisions through private pensions or health insurance schemes
While it is surely a positive development that women now have a more enhanced role in society, this does not mean that the traditional family or the obligations associated with raising children should be dismissed as obsolete。People can work and raise children simultaneously，yet there needs to be more state support to facilitate this.
