Ach-Mensch-Podcast with Nicole Hiekel
For our German audiences: Nicole Hiekel was a guest on the Ach-Mensch podcast by detektor.fm and the Max Planck Society. In the new series on "Freedom", she talks about how social norms and individual attitudes towards gender equality influence the decision whether, when and in which family model we become parents and how we shape our lives as parents.
Nicole Hiekel leads the Independent Research Group "Gender Inequalities and Fertility" at MPIDR. Together with her team, she investigates gender inequalities in birth patterns and partnership biographies that underlie the complexity of today's family structures.
