Carter's A Call to Action is being published in late March and is a book about women's rights. In the president's travels around the world, he has noted many abuses against women and girls, as well as the religious beliefs that are sometimes used to justify those abuses. The president is the author of numerous other books, most recently the controversial Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.
