What Women in China Want | Podcast | Overheard at National Geographic | Travel & Tourism Video Vloggers And Reviews

Chinese women are having fewer babies. China's population is declining, and the government wants to turn it around—but will it work?

There are more than 8 billion humans on Earth, according to the United Nations. And for decades, China has had more people than any other country. But now, China’s population is declining. As soon as this year, it could lose its place as the most populous nation in the world. National Geographic photographer Justin Jin shares what he observed in this pivotal moment for China; he captured scenes where many young women are choosing not to have children, and instead are spending their money on doggie daycare and on karaoke nights with friends and male escorts. As we head into Women’s History Month, we’ll explore why Chinese women are taking a different path, despite the government campaigns pushing them to get married and have children.

At a cost of tens of thousands of U.S. dollars, privately run centers like this one now offer new mothers the month of recovery—zuo yuezi—recommended in traditional Chinese medicine. The cost of raising children in modern China is a key factor in the country’s declining population.
