According to the PEW Research Center, “nearly one-in-five American women ends her childbearing years without having borne a child, compared with one-in-ten in the 1970s.” Although more women are choosing not to have children, television shows like the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother represent voluntary childlessness as the choice of women who deviate from gender norms.  Join Dr. Jessica Lyn Van Slooten as she presents representations of child-free women in contemporary American sitcoms.  This lecture is free and open to the public.
