A platform for voices supporting women's rights
Carter has written on topics ranging from the Middle East conflict to autobiographical accounts of life in the Southern US in his post-Presidential career and now, at the age of 88, he has decided to write a book about the “treatment of women”. The official book proposal gives little to go on, but it seems the content will largely be drawn from Carter’s international Human Rights activism and personal experience from what can only be described as an astounding career.
It is difficult to determine who the audience of this proposed book will be, whether this will be a true attempt at tackling “one of the world’s most serious, all-pervasive and largely ignored violations of basic human rights” or if this will simply be an addition to Carter’s publishing repertoire. His book proposal certainly triggers intrigue (if slight trepidation) as he discusses the separation of church and state “It is disturbing to realize that women are treated most equally in some countries that are atheistic or where governments are strictly separated from religion.” However, it is encouraging to see such an active figure pick up the gauntlet of women’s rights and Female Report! is certainly interested to see the finished product.
