International Child Free Day
August 1 is celebrated by women who deliberately do not want to have children International Child Free Day.
Common representatives of the fair sex, as well as show business stars, are involved in this ideology. They believe that motherhood is not an obligatory vocation for all women and defend the right to this opinion.
Arguments in support of the “Childfree” ideology
- Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding have a negative impact on a woman’s health.
- Care work leads to loss of career opportunities.
- Expenditure of a large amount of time and material resources on unpaid work for the maintenance of the household and children.
- The forced necessity to give up hobbies, travel and rest for the sake of the child.
Some talk about overpopulation of the globe and reluctance to pass hereditary diseases to children. The third group of women is terrified of the physiological processes associated with pregnancy and childbirth, as well as the fear of losing a loved one.
The purpose of International Child Free Day
The purpose of the holiday is to draw attention to the shortcomings of the patriarchal system, when a woman does not have the right to choose in matters of childbirth and their upbringing.
