Hey, not bad!

Way to go, Jimmy Carter. I'm not a big fan of arguments from God - whatever camp's opinions they are used to justify - but, religious stuff aside, it's good to see acknowledgement of the fact that Women's rights are human rights (thanks for that phrase, Hillary Clinton), and that the systematic oppression of women is a global human rights crisis, coming from this sort of echelon of politics:

"Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women's equal rights across the world for centuries."
