Had to go pick up my kiddo from school and caught part of President Carter’s interview on The Diane Rehm Show, which is ongoing. (Yes, I’m a totebagger.) Here’s the intro to the show on Rehm’s site:
President Jimmy Carter, our 39th president, has set a high bar for post-presidential accomplishments: He’s written more than 24 books, been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and continues to work to solve problems around the world. In recent years, he says he’s “become convinced that the most serious and unaddressed worldwide challenge is the deprivation and abuse of women and girls.” It’s a problem that he says is connected to the misinterpretation of selected religious texts and a general acceptance of violence and warfare. Join Diane for a conversation with President Jimmy Carter on his call to action for women and girls.
What a wonderful human being. You can hear the show live here.
