Storyboard Text

  • I was reaserching about the One Child Policy that was created in between 1978-1980
  • This policy was taken place in china from 1978 to about 2015.
  • So a key figures in the One Child Policy was Mao Zedong. He was thinking of the plan but unexpectedly passed in 1976. Then the next leader, Deng Xiaoping carried out the plan by putting it in place in 1978.
  • The One Child Policy was put in place to reduce the population of China. China was rapidly reaching 1 billion mark. This policy was such a big problem because there are 3-4% more males than females born. That's a difference of about 20 million. Another issue is a rise in longevity. Most elders expect their children to take care of them after they retire. There are fewer children to help support. There were some cases of children that were born and hidden because of the law. So they may face hardship because of their undocumented presence.
  • This One Child Policy was such a concern because is caused such an unbalance in gender. Therefore less marriages meaning less of the next generation.
  • This problem was recently resolved. They lifted the law in 2015. Now it is alright for a couple to have two children.
