Title:Gender, Nation, Pronatalism: Encouraging Births in France, Romania, and Israel

Abstract:Building on feminist studies that have linked pronatalism with nationalism, I examine right wing nationalisms and more inclusive, citizen-based nationalisms, which are more accepting of "the other," but may still be concerned with reproducing a national group. This study reveals a complex set of issues surrounding pronatalism and gender equity. In recent years, policies have generally become more gender-neutral in tone and content. However, pronatalist efforts in the three countries I examined had negative implications for gender equity as well, namely, restrictions on contraception or abortion and emphasis in public discourse on women's role as mother, rather than citizen or worker.
