NEW YORK -- Jimmy CarĀ­ter's next book will be a defense of women's rights and an attack against those who use religion to deny them.

Simon & Schuster has announced that the former president's "A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power" will be published March 25. The publisher said Carter will draw upon personal observations from his worldwide travels as he condemns abuses of women and girls and the alleged distortions of religious texts cited as justification.
