Originally released at the U.N. Conference on Women held in Beijing, China in 1995, Women, Men, and the Global Quality of life, a CPS study of 89 countries, dramatically reveals the connection between women’s rights and a better quality of life for both men and women.

Using a variety of statistical analyses, this 123-page work conclusively correlates women’s higher educational levels, political representation, and access to contraception with a society’s overall higher living standards: life spans, health care, education, income, and preservation of the environment. This study points to policies needed for a partnership future.

Amazon Smile Program

If you shop online at Amazon, please go through AmazonSmile, their charitable rewards program to give 0.5% of all eligible purchases to CPS. It’s quick and easy. All you have to do is:

  1. Go to Set this as a bookmark and always enter Amazon through this address. This is important, as purchases made through the regular Amazon site are not calculated toward the charity disbursements.
  2. The first time that you go to the site, you will be asked to fill in the organization that you want to benefit from your purchases. Type in the Center for Partnership Studies (it should also appear in the dropdown selections).
  3. After that, just do your ordering as you normally do.

We are most grateful, and most encouraged to count you among our Caring friends.
