Weitzman says China's one-child policy has had devastating effects on first-born daughters

a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"End of one-child policy won't end bias against girls in China, experts say" - Al Jazeera. 10/29/2015.

China's decades-long one-child policy has been abolished. This piece explores how this might impact attitudes and fertility decisions around having girls in China. PSC postdoc scholar Abigail Weitzman says a "daughter tax" against unwanted first-born daughters in China exacts physical and emotional penalties on girls.
