Italy Creates “Fertility Day” on 22nd September.-
As Italy struggles with declining birth-rates and slumping economic growth, Italian lawmakers actually made a “day” to remind women that their futures hould involve a baby.
At present, Italy has one of the lowest birth-rates in Europe: 1.37 children per woman. In 2015, the country saw the birth of 488,000 babies, the fewest births since Italy’s 1861 unification.
“Celebrated” on September 22, the Italian government says it created Fertility Day in a campaign to encourage Italians to have more babies, The New York Times reported.
“I should be a model for their campaign, and I still feel very offended,” VittoriaIacovella, 37, a journalist and mother of two girls, told the Times. “The government encourages us to have babies, and then the main welfare system in Italy is still the grandparents.”
Before generally tough economic times and a state which provides comparatively little social benefits for families, to many Italians the cost of rearing a child is too much to bear.
At present, unemployment in Italy hovers at 11.5 percent, which is nearly three percent higher than the entire EU unemployment rate, and nearly three times as high as Germany’s unemployment rate.
For those who have work, particularly working women whose employers don’t really accommodate women’s needs as mothers, the prospect of paying for expensive private Child care or taking too many days off to be with their children is too risky.
This lack of government safety net, experts say, helps explain why Italy has seen a drop in birth-rates whereas other European countries also experiencing economic stagnation, such as France, still maintain higher birth-rates (two children per woman).
“On paper, Italian women have equal rights,” said Tiziana Bartolini, the editor of Noi Donne, one of Italy’s most prominent feminist magazines, told the Times. “But reality tells us a different story. Women are expected to care for children. If they live in regions where services are good, or in small towns, they keep their job.
If they live in big, chaotic cities and have no family nearby, they are very prudent about becoming pregnant.” “Or they stop working,” she added.
Bartolini’s quip about quitting work to have children rings true for many. As women’s advocate Teresa Potenza told the Times, many companies ask women to agree to leave their jobs should they become pregnant. “So many young women are even asked to presign a resignation letter here, especially in small companies,” Potenza said. “[This] campaign is a punch in thegut.”
While, as the Times reports, the Italian government under the Matteo Renzi administration has attempted to improve labour laws and add subsidies to make having children more thinkable for Italians, critics say there is still much more work to be done.
