The Moment of Lift

by Melinda Gates

The Moment of Lift

Melinda Gates

Overview

Despite making up half the human population, women have been treated as less than human throughout history. But what can be done when even in countries where women are legally equal to men, their position in society lags far behind?

Apart from her notoriety for having been married to the founder of Microsoft, Melinda French Gates has had an impressive career in tech and philanthropy as the cofounder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In her debut book, Gates provides readers with a thorough understanding of gender inequality across the world, as well as the initiatives being implemented to reduce it. By highlighting the often invisible ways in which women are devalued and held back, The Moment of Lift shows how we can create a world where women matter.

"The first time I was asked if I was a feminist, I didn't know what to say because I didn't think of myself as a feminist. I'm not sure I knew what a feminist was."
