Mark Regnerus: Are Women Choosing Careers Over Marriage and Children?
On this week’s episode, Mark Regnerus joins She Thinks to help us explore the latest data showing the long-term decline in fertility, both in the U.S. and abroad. Some say that this is largely due to women choosing a career over motherhood, but does that paint the full picture? Mark and Beverly explore the many reasons why women aren’t having as many kids (or any kids at all) and what this means for them as well as for society at large.
Mark Regnerus is a professor of sociology at the University of Texas at Austin and a senior fellow at the Austin Institute for the Study of Family and Culture. The author of four books from Oxford University Press and more than 40 articles in peer-reviewed journals, his research and scholarly essays have appeared in media outlets as diverse as Slate and First Things.
