Frontline Insight: One Child Policy, China’s fertility experiment

Frontline Insight: One Child Policy, China’s fertility experiment

by Shanshan Chen | Thomson Reuters Foundation

The Thomson Reuters Foundation met Mei Fong, author of One Child, at London's Frontline Club to get her take on the policy's impact and hear about the challenges she faced writing the book.

"Not only is there a first generation of only children, you now have the only children have their only children," said Fong, "So that has changed the structure how we view family, how we revere our elders, how we view women versus men.”

Frontline Insight is a new opinion series from the Thomson Reuters Foundation in which speakers from the Frontline Club in London share their views on a range of topics.
