    One of AudioFile magazine's Best Audiobooks of 2019

    New York Times best seller

    Now with a new afterword!

    How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings - and especially for women? Because, when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.

    For the last 20 years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission 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 society up, you need to stop keeping women down.

    In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares lessons she’s learned from the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world. 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.”

    Melinda’s unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention - from child marriage to lack of access to contraceptives to gender inequity in the workplace. And, for the first time, she writes about her personal life and the road to equality in her own marriage. Throughout, she shows how there has never been more opportunity to change the world - and ourselves.

    Writing with emotion, candor, and grace, she introduces us to remarkable women and shows the power of connecting with one another.

    When we lift others up, they lift us up, too.

    A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

    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.” (Brené Brown, PhD, author of the New York Times number one best seller Dare to Lead)

    “Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book 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)

    “Melinda Gates' book is a lesson in listening. A powerful, poignant, and ultimately humble call to arms.” (Tara Westover, author of the New York Times number one best seller Educated)

    amazing

    she is able to put into words no only the problematic itself and her experience to it but also the analysis and history behind it. I had a lot of "aha moments"!
