Jimmy Carter's next book will be a defense of women's rights and an attack against those who use religion to deny equality.
Simon & Shuster announced Tuesday that the former president's "A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power" will be published March 25.
The publisher says Carter will draw upon personal observations from his worldwide travels as he condemns abuses of women and girls and the alleged distortions of religious texts cited as justification.
Other books he has written include "An Hour Before Daylight: Memories of a Rural Boyhood," "Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis," "Through the Year with Jimmy Carter: 366 Daily Meditations from the 39th President," and "We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land: A Plan That Will Work."
