Dr. Amy Blackstone is Professor of Sociology and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, USA. Her book Childfree by Choice (Dutton, 2019) offers a definitive investigation into the history and current growing movement of adults choosing to forgo parenthood: what it means for our society, economy, environment, perceived gender roles, and legacies. Dr. Blackstone’s research on the childfree choice has been featured in New York Times, Washington Post, TIME, CNN, The Atlantic, BBC, Al Jazeera, TODAY, Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and other national and international outlets.
