Jimmy Carter: Mistreatment of Women is the Number One Human Rights Abuse

Busy day today, so I leave you with Jimmy Carter’s TED Talk on why he believes that the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights abuse. It ranges around a bit, but I appreciate the message from this man, of his particular generation, steeped in religion as he is, in his position of great privilege. It’s especially poignant in the face of the recent announcement of his metastatic liver cancer; this man’s legacy is profound.
