On Monday, May 20, the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution will convene an event to discuss the findings of a new report, “The Ties that Bind: Is Faith a Global Force for Good or Ill in the Family?” from the Institute for Family Studies and the Wheatley Institution. The report explores the relationship between religion and four important outcomes—relationship quality, fertility, domestic violence, and infidelity—in the United States and 10 other countries in the Americas and Europe. It also explores the complicated relationship between religion and feminism when it comes to family life. The event will feature two expert panels responding to various issues in the report.
