It’s the practice of religion that is the basic cause of the foundation of excuse for the other abuses against women
Jimmy Carter, former president, author, and international peacemaking activist, has announced he is writing a book about the mistreatment of women worldwide.
"...one of the conclusions we have reached is that it’s the practice of religion that is the basic cause of the foundation of excuse for the other abuses; where women are deprived of an equal right to serve God. And where they are treated as subordinates or inferior people. And this example set by religions leaders gives an excuse to other dominant males to persecute, or abuse, or deprive women of their justifiable rights. This is a question that has never been publicly discussed before, and the Elders help this will arouse and interest in the world in trying to seek corrections made to religions themselves to set an example for full rights for all women.”
