Harvard Divinity School welcomes President JIMMY CARTER to Harvard for a discussion of his latest book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power.

A Call to Action
urges the end of discrimination and abuse against women, calling it the number one challenge in the world today. The book builds on the work of faith leaders and courageous human rights defenders who met in 2013 at the Carter Center to mobilize faith groups worldwide to commit to advancing women’s rights. Religion, they said, should be a force for equality and human dignity not oppression.
