Product description


Powerfully illustrates issues that need our attention. -- Barack Obama A moral appeal, imploring each of us who reads it to look around ? at our own families, our own workplaces, our own place in a gigantic, but highly connected, world ? and get to work making it more equal. -- Chicago Tribune I think this is one of the best books I've ever read. -- Warren Buffett An inspirational look at the need to empower women to make change in the world. -- Washington Post The Moment of Lift reveals painful truths about women living in the most vulnerable areas of the world. Melinda Gates uplifts and inspires by weaving a narrative of fortitude and hope. She pushes us to challenge the status quo and never settle. -- Mellody Hobson For the past two decades, Melinda Gates has been a force, and an increasingly forceful voice, in global health. Yet The Moment of Lift is a book about gender equity and its golden thread is empathy. This book lifts up the voices of women and girls whose experiences have been entirely unlike Melinda's own. They've taught her a great deal, and in this beautifully crafted and artful memoir, Melinda Gates invites the reader to learn from them too. -- Paul Farmer, MD, Kolokotrones University Professor, Harvard Medical School Co-Founder, Partners In Health Melinda Gates's book is a lesson in listening. A powerful, poignant, and ultimately humble call to arms. -- Tara Westover, author of Educated This book is a beautiful and concise mission statement on what we need to do to move society forward- continue to empower women. At every level and in all places women are truly the bedrock supporting their communities. -- Trevor Noah The Moment of Lift is an urgent call to courage. It changed how I think about myself, my family, my work, and what's possible in the world. Melinda weaves together vulnerable, brave storytelling and compelling data to make this one of those rare books that you carry in your heart and mind long after the last page. -- Brene Brown, Ph.D., author of New York Times #1 bestseller Dare to Lead Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book charts her own evolution as a feminist and celebrates the stories of others who inspired her on her journey. It is an urgent manifesto for an equal society where women are valued and recognized in all spheres of life. Most of all, it is a call for unity, inclusion and connection. We need this message more than ever. -- Malala Yousafzai
