President Carter Book Tour

Gazette Events - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 15:30
Sanders Theater, Memorial Hall
Wed., Nov. 19, 2014, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.

President Jimmy Carter will be coming to Harvard to discuss his latest book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power.

A Call to Action urges the end of discrimination and abuse against women, calling it the number one challenge in the world today. The book builds on the work of faith leaders and courageous human rights defenders who met in 2013 at The Carter Center to mobilize faith groups worldwide to commit to advancing women’s rights. Religion, they said, should be a force for equality and human dignity not oppression.

The event is free, but tickets are required for admission.
Tickets will be available for pick-up at the Harvard Box Office.
