President Jimmy Carter issues 'A Call to Action' on discrimination and violence against women Speaking at the Civil Rights Summit held April 8-10, 2014 at the LBJ Presidential Library, former President Jimmy Carter told the audience he's seen "almost unbelievable" prejudice and persecution of women and girls, in America and around the world. He said we don't do anything about it because men make the decisions, just as we didn't do anything about discrimination and violence against blacks because white people made the decisions. Carter called sexual slavery "the worst human rights violation on earth." President Carter is out with a best-selling book "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power."12:00 p.m.
