Former President Jimmy Carter has a new book on shelves about sexual abuse to women, both abroad and in the U.S.

Carter appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday to talk about his book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power. He said one of the worst places in our country for sexual abuse is on college campuses, which he calls “a place where girls are regularly abused.

“Quite often their rapists are serial rapists who know that when they go to a college campus, they won't be revealed, and they won't be charged, and they won't be prosecuted because college presidents and deans don't want their universities to get a reputation of the center for sexual abuse.”

He says the same issue occurs in the U.S. Military and on college campuses.

“The college president – they don't want it at Notre Dame or anywhere else."

President Carter's new book sells for around $22 as hardcover or around $15 as an E-book on Kindle or Nook.
