Former President Jimmy Carter is releasing a new book entitled “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power,” which will be available on March 25, 2014. Jimmy Carter’s book will be defensive of women’s rights as well as an assertion against people who use religion to deny equality of women in the world’s society, according to a Yahoo! News report on Wednesday.

The publisher of the work, Simon & Shuster which is a division of CBS Corp., says Carter refers to his personal observations via his global travels to denounce any abuse of women and girls – as well as any efforts one may attempt to justify their abuses of females via religious writings.

In the past, President Carter has written a number of books including memoirs, poetry, and his piece on the Middle East entitled “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.
