WHAT IS IT ABOUT
“A wise, honest, and beautifully written book about how empowering women lifts up everyone. It’s about the women who have inspired Melinda during her work and travels.
Melinda opens up about her personal journey from private citizen to public advocate. When a woman has her full voice and decision-making authority, she empowers everybody around her.
For the last twenty years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission. Her goal, as co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has been to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, invest in women.
A timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment, presenting the issues that most need attention and showing how empowering women changes the world. Throughout, Gates introduces us to her heroes in the movement towards equality, offers startling data, shares moving conversations she's had with women from all over the world—and shows how we can all get involved.”
