    Only one President in our lifetime has taken action on human rights. He first took action to address women’s rights. According to Ruth Bader Ginsberg, he appointed 39 women to the Federal Court in 4 years, including Sandra Day O’Connor and herself. He required the Treasury to audit the banks (government contractors) to assure that they were conforming to the EEO and Affirmative Action laws. Following that, if you looked at the officer ranks, it was clear that women had become 50% of the officers at many levels. While Jimmy Carter has supported human rights throughout his time in the public eye, I believe women should have large celebrations to honor of him for his accomplishments. None of the Presidents following him have taken any actions in this regard, they just talk. Congress has changed the EEO and Affirmative Action law so that it’s no longer the regulator for the industry but the Labor Department that overseas it for these companies.
