The global abuse of women

In A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, President Carter addresses the world’s most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights: the ongoing discrimination and violence against women and girls. Wanda Sobieski responds to his book in this recording.

“Carter makes a well-documented argument that the worst of prejudice, discrimination, wars, violence, distorted interpretations of religious texts, physical and mental abuse, poverty and disease fall disproportionately on women and girls,” Sobieski says. “He concludes with a Call to Action list of 23 very specific steps we can take individually and/or collectively to address this worldwide challenge.”

Wanda Sobieski joined Baker, Worthington, Crossley, Stansberry & Woolf law firm in 1982, becoming the first woman partner in the hundred-year history of the firm. She established her own law firm in 1993.
