Jimmy Carter, the 39th US President, speaks in an open forum at Yale on the world's discrimination and violence against women and girls, which he believes is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights. Throughout his travels, President Carter has seen inequality rising rapidly with each passing decade -- this is true in both rich and poor countries, and among the citizens within them. This talk is his call to action.
Yale President Peter Salovey and former President of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo pose questions during this forum.
