FOREMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER PENS NEW BOOK

A book by former US President, Jimmy Carter will be a defence of women’s rights and an attack against those who use religion to deny equality. Simon & Shuster announced today that A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power will be published March 25th. The publisher says Carter will draw upon personal observations from his worldwide travels as he condemns abuses of women and girls and the alleged distortions of religious texts cited as justification. The 89-year-old has written a wide range of books since leaving office in 1981, from memoirs and poetry to a controversial work on the Middle East, titled: Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.
