Today we will be discussing China's One Child Policy and how it recently came to an end. China's One Child Policy was created to lower China's overgrowing population.
However, it resulted in a gender imbalance where there were 119 males born for every 100 females born, as boys were favored.
Boys were favored over girls as it was believed they would be more successful in the future and would be able to care for their elders, which made it hard for girls to find a husband.
The rapid decrease in the birth rate caused around 70% of elderly people above 65 to not have anyone to take care of them or to depend on.
This resulted in the '4:2:1' phenomenon where each couple has to care for one child and four elders. Families with more than one child had to either pay a large fine or have an abortion.
To help China's aging population the 'One Child Policy' has been removed and now every couple is allowed 2 children. Thank you for your attention, see you next time!
