Bridget Mary's Response:
Rosemarie Smead, ARCWP, attended  President  Carter's book signing  for a "Call to Action" in Cincinnati on April 1, 2014
Dr. Smead  purchased several copies of  A Call to Action. She gave President Carter a copy of my book, Living Gospel Equality Now and the award winning documentary about our  international Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement: "Pink Smoke Over the Vatican" by film maker, Jules Hart.  He looked up and smiled and said "Oh! when Rosemarie informed the President that these resources were from  the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.

A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power 

The world’s discrimination and violence against women and girls is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights: This is President Jimmy Carter’s call to action.

President Carter was encouraged to write this book by a wide coalition of leaders of all faiths. His urgent report covers a system of discrimination that extends to every nation. Women are deprived of equal opportunity in wealthier nations and “owned” by men in others, forced to suffer servitude, child marriage, and genital cutting. The most vulnerable, along with their children, are trapped in war and violence.
