The Rolla Area Citizens for Women Book Club will meet August 2nd at 1:00 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Rolla to discuss the first half of "A Call To Action" by Jimmy Carter.
President Carter was encouraged to write this book by a wide coalition of leaders of all faiths. His urgent report covers a system of discrimination that extends to every nation. Women are deprived of equal opportunity in wealthier nations and 'owned' by men in others, forced to suffer servitude, child marriage, and genital cutting. Carter draws upon his own experiences and the testimony of courageous women from all regions and all major religions to demonstrate that women around the world, more than half of all human beings, are being denied equal rights. This is an informed and passionate charge about a devastating effect on economic prosperity and unconscionable human suffering.
Please feel free to bring a lunch. There will be a Peanut Butter Lust pie as well. Yum. Pie.
