    • 2019, Sarah Ditum, "Mum's the Word", Literary Review, March:
      Falling birth rates are being met in many nations with a backlash: in China, Poland, Hungary and elsewhere, natalism is making a comeback, and the line between policies that are ‘pro-family’ (benefits and incentives) and those that are ‘anti-woman’ (abortion bans and the rescinding of workplace rights) is skin-thin.
