What a treasure ❣️😍
Russell ‘s honesty and authenticity around this tender & intimate subject, for the sake of others who may benefit from it, is a laudable example of how we can be in the world.
My highest purpose in the world is to lift others, as best I can, to their highest self. This book provides me with a tool to vastly enhance those abilities.
I am so grateful for and to Mr Brand for his selfless offering. 😍🙏🏽
A Call to Action
- Women, Religion, Violence, and Power
- By: Jimmy Carter
- Narrated by: Jimmy Carter
- Length: 6 hrs and 33 mins
The world’s discrimination and violence against women and girls is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights: This is President Jimmy Carter’s call to action. A Call to Action addresses the suffering inflicted upon women by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare. Key verses are often omitted or quoted out of context by male religious leaders to exalt the status of men and exclude women.
Incomprehensible from a western point of view

The time is ripe for women to claim their influence and power in the world. This read is more than an education; it is an inspiration by one of our staunchest supporters. Hearing his words in President Jimmy Carter's sweet Georgian accent is a pleasant bonus. Enjoy & then go make it a better world.
