The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World is the first book by Melinda French Gates. In it, she expands on her claim that when we lift up women, we lift up humanity.
After years of travel, humanitarian work and extensive research, Melinda introduces us to the women she's met along the way. Their stories are brutally honest, gut-wrenching, inspiring and triumphant. They show us how, time and time again, empowered women rise up and bring their families and communities with them. Melinda also shares her own personal journey to achieving equality in her marriage, finding her voice and becoming an advocate for women and girls.
