The defining characteristics of feminism are not femininity and fertility, but barrenness and infertility.

What do Macron, May, and Merkel have in common, apart from their neatly alliterative names and being leaders of Europe’s largest nations? They have no children. They are by no means exceptional, however, in this respect. Many European political leaders are childless.
The same is true of Holland’s Marc Rutte, Italy’s Paolo Gentiloni Switzerland's Simonetta Sommaruga, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon.
Is it pure coincidence that these top European leaders are involuntarily childless? Possibly, but not very likely. In fact, they are a reflection of Europe and that continent’s lack of will to reproduce and place the family at the center, literally as well as culturally. This disturbing trend threatens to bring down Europe.
The other characteristic shared by childless leaders is their multicultural, globalist policies, replete with open borders, mass immigration, and the traditional family - at least that of Europeans - fragmented into atoms and replaced by an individualistic lifestyle. Families are increasingly becoming a pragmatic construction based on individual whim and preference.
In 2014, Statistics Denmark drafted a report distinguishing no less than 37 different types of families.

Feminism the culprit

Europe’s leaders are undiluted products of a dominant feminist culture. For example, many of French citizens who cast their vote for Emmanuel Macron in the recent French presidential election were women. Before the election, 62 percent of female voters said they would back Macron. This is typical of the foot soldiers of the 1960 and 1970s women’s liberation movement. They like Macron’s feminism. The defining characteristics of feminism are not femininity and fertility, but barrenness and infertility.

problem is not limited to European society.
A recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center shows that the number of young men in the US who want to marry has dropped to the lowest level ever recorded. American author Suzanne Venker claims the pervasive cultural influence of feminism is the cause. Venker states that men explain their lack of desire to marry with the observation that “women are no longer women” and for this reason, men don’t feel like having a family with many kids. This attitude from males is part of the reason so many women are childless in this generation.
The feminist ideology views childbearing and children as an obstacle to self-realization. This is why they fought for abortion on demand, and with the contraceptive pill introduced at the same time, this was something easily attainable. Men have obviously adopted the same attitude.
Women who, like myself, grew up in the 1970s were brainwashed with the necessity to be independent of any man, and that abortion was every bit as natural as giving birth, if not more so. Feminism was largely successful in severing sex from reproduction. This was considered progressive, a step forward that liberated women from caring for their children, so they could join the labor market and realize themselves.
Feminism, however, now threatens to put an end to Europe. Birth rates are so low in most European countries that populations no longer reproduce.
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s childlessness reflects German society in general. European statistics reveal that one-third of German women have not borne even a single child, while the figure is fully 40 percent of female university graduates. German Minister of Defense Ursula von der Leyen observed that unless the birth rate rises, the country will have to "turn the lights out."
A recent study by the Institut National D'études Démographiques reports that a quarter of European women born in the 1970s are likely to remain childless. One-ninth of women born in England in 1940 were childless at the age of 45. The figure for those born in 1967 was one-fifth.
Europe has been committing protracted demographic suicide for several decades, and politicians have done precisely nothing to turn this tide of doom and encourage women to have children - and conspicuously less for easing the crushing strain on the traditional family with children. Many couples can’t even afford to raise more than one or two children due to high taxation. But the main reason for the demographic suicide is obviously that being childless is being free of care, burdens and problems, as reflected in the title of an EU-funded research report entitled, ”No Kids, No Problem!”
Additional research reveals how "personal and cultural factors shape attitudes toward voluntary childlessness in Europe. Europeans are increasingly less likely to see childlessness as a problem."
