The birth rate is plunging in the U.S.: It's a spontaneous Birth Strike! In other countries, panic over low birth rates has led governments to underwrite childbearing and childrearing with generous universal programs, but in the U.S., women have not yet realized the potential of our bargaining position. When we do, it will lead to new strategies for improving the difficult working conditions U.S. parents now face when raising children.

Jenny Brown is a National Women’s Liberation organizer and former editor of Labor Notes. She was a leader in the grassroots campaign to have “morning-after pill” contraception available over-the-counter in the U.S. She is coauthor of Women’s Liberation and National Health Care: Confronting the Myth of America, and author of Without Apology: The Abortion Struggle Now.
