Jimmy Carter: "Why I believe the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights abuse"
With his signature resolve, former US President Jimmy Carter dives into three unexpected reasons why the mistreatment of women and girls continues in so many manifestations in so many parts of the world, both developed and developing. The final reason he gives? “In general, men don’t give a damn.”
On My Path
The path to spiritual richness requires both inward work, connecting to the spirit of life and love within us, and outward work, connecting to that same spirit in others. Deepen and enrich your journey in the company of other pilgrims as we explore our connection to the divine. Newcomers are always welcome.
Sincere gratitude to Board Member Daniel Melendez. as he steps down due to health concerns.
Daniel, thanks for serving Pathways in so many valuable volunteer roles! You leave big shoes to fill!
