On March 28, 2014, Former United States President Jimmy Carter, made an appearance at Barnes and Noble, at The Grove promoting and signing his book called A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.
President Jimmy Carter has written more than two dozen books over the course of his career, from the art of aging to how to achieve peace in the Middle East. All his writing is anchored by a deep-seated belief in the equality of all people.
In his new book, A Call To Action, President Carter tackles a fundamental question of equality head-on: the subjugation of women in cultures around the world. During his interview, President Carter also talked about the state of human trafficking and whether religion can be a conduit for lasting change around gender.
As for me, I was incredibly fortunate and honored to have had the opportunity to exclusively interview President Carter. In my one-on-one interview, I actually focused on a personal topic rather than politics. My question to the former president was inspired from my 6-year-old son, Hovik John Magzanyan. Hovik is a little boy with big dreams who wishes to become a President of the Unites States of America…someday.
And so I asked Mr. President Carter “What advice would you give to a little boy who would love to follow in your steps?” As he looked at me with a warm smile, he replied “Just make sure they treat their sisters and girlfriends equally and with full respect.”
President Carter’s message to little boys is to respect women, whether it’s a sister or a girlfriend. One of the greatest gifts a parent (s) can provide their son(s) with is to teach him(them) to always respect women and treat them with kindness. President Jimmy Carter is the thirty-ninth President of the United States, serving from 1977 to 1981.
