Childfree: Why More People Than Ever Are Not Having Babies, and How They’re Doing Just Fine (Dutton, 2019)
Amy Blackstone, Ph.D.
From childfree expert Dr. Amy Blackstone comes a definitive exploration of why so many today are choosing to live childfree. Backed by years of pioneering research, Dr. Blackstone argues that there can still be love, community, and happiness without children. We just need to expand our thinking about marriage, family, and the meaning of a good life — and even womanhood.
A leading voice in the childfree choice, Dr. Blackstone holds a joint appointment at the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and the Sociology Department at the University of Maine. She has discussed her social science research in a variety of media outlets including the Katie Show, TODAY, Ms., Huffington Post, TIME, public radio, and other local, regional, and national venues. She has been interviewed or had her research mentioned in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker, CNN.com, and more.
