The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates

Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has created one of the most compelling, jarring and perspective-altering books for go-getting women. In The Moment of Lift she shares stories from women all over the world and shows us in real, tangible examples the global impact that comes when we lift women up. 

The right to:

  • Spend your own money
  • Go to school
  • Earn an income
  • Access contraceptives
  • Work outside the home
  • Walk outside the home
  • Choose whom to marry
  • Get a loan
  • Start a business
  • Own property
  • Divorce a husband
  • See a doctor
  • Drive a car

All of these rights are denied to women in some parts of the world.

In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares the stories of the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world and the lessons she’s learned from them. As she writes in the introduction, “That is why I had to write this book – to share the stories of people who have given focus and urgency to my life. I want all of us to see ways we can lift women up where we live.”

    "I am not sure how considering the global reach she has but Melinda Gates had never been on my radar until I read this book.... This book is one that I will read over and over again. There were parts of the book that I cried, other parts I had to put the book down and walk away and I even laughed in other sections. I love that Melinda has used her platform to share parts of her own story, yes, but more importantly to shine a light on the women she has met and their stories." - Carly, Chief Book Officer of Tell Her.
