A Call To Action


President Jimmy Carter has most certainly risen to the top in his retirement efforts in his new book, A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power.

He makes a brilliant, honest case about how every nation’s discrimination and violence against women and girls remains the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights. What separates him from others is how he not only references government and business, but also bravely takes on religion.

Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter operate The Carter Center through which they have visited over 145 countries and created active projects in more than half of these. Their experiences and the testimony of courageous women from all regions and all major religions that are denied equal rights fueled the work that supports a call to action.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.

One thought on “A Call To Action

  1. Too bad he didn’t have a call for action when he was president. If he had we would not have all the terroristic events we have now.
