The Chinese government enacted family planning laws based on the finding that China’s population growth is declining to its lowest level since 1950. In this context, the Chinese government estimates that the 2021 population policy will be a major step forward. But Stras alleges that the government’s policy is reversed and that the new law can only increase existing inequality. According to the news agency, the issue sparked protests in China on May 31, when the new policy was announced. Many blame the rising cost of living in the country. They point out that there is a huge increase in the cost of educating children and that they have to work longer hours. In addition, women say childcare centers are in short supply and beyond their means, including rent. Meanwhile, they allege that the government is forcing them to increase the number of children.
Lu Fin, a Chinese feminist activist, told the New York Times that the government was not taking any action and that they were just talking. They also say that it is meaningless to say that the government will implement. Meanwhile, Chinese President Xi Jinping is pushing for tough action against profiteering, including online tuition apps for children. The Chinese Communist Party had earlier promised to take action to prevent online tuition platforms from making a profit. China estimates that this could lead to a significant reduction in parental spending on children’s entrance coaching and education. In addition, the government has imposed restrictions on online gaming platforms. The new system prohibits children from playing games for more than three hours a day.
