Changing Attitude of Women towards Infertility and Motherhood


The present study was conducted among the employed women (N=50) at their reproductive age (25-35 years) of urban Kolkata to elucidate their changing attitudes towards infertility and motherhood. We found that the women were very much attentive to their personal happiness and career. They did not believe to perform their traditional female roles because in their opinion it was a restriction of achieving their equity and justice in our patriarchal society. They were engrossed into most modern urban mode of life. They did not prefer to enter into their marital relation because it would be a threat to cherish their happiness. Even in their opinion infertility would not be a stigma in women’s lives because it would be an obstacle for their freedom and self progress in their working life. But they would prefer to enjoy the taste of motherhood otherwise rather than biologically. Thus reproductive rights of women were violated through their overall behaviour.
