With the development of society and economy, women’s willingness to have children is also decreasing. Women assume the double responsibilities of population and social reproduction in life, which also has a great impact on women’s career development. Studies have shown that the comprehensive fertility rate of women of childbearing age in China in 2020 is 1.3%, which has reached the internationally recognized lowest level. In fact, the impact of female fertility on women’s career development is mainly reflected in career stability, career income and other aspects. This study expounds women’s fertility willingness in their career from three aspects: the survey and analysis of women’s fertility willingness, the factors influencing women’s fertility willingness, and the countermeasures and suggestions for women’s career, so as to stimulate the positive effect of fertility on women and promote the coordinated development of population and society.
