Description - Fertility and Familial Power Relations by Minna Saavala

This social anthropological study on fertility practices describes and analyses the corollaries of declining fertility in Southern India. It seeks to broaden the scope of our understanding of the consequences of fertility reducing policies at the level of the individual and the family. How are familial and gender relations affected by the new situation of women giving birth only to 2-3 children? Contents: Introduction - Contextualizing Fertility; Filling Hungry Bellies - Children as Consumers; Ethnography of Fertility Practices; Marital Relations - 'It's Dangerous to Love your Husband!'; The Familial Web of Domination; Gendered Children - 'Son for the Sake of the Name'; Conclusion - The Logic of the 'Small Family'.
