A debut from Melinda Gates, a timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment.

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.

In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares lessons shes learned from the inspiring people shes met during her work and travels around the world. As she writes in the introduction, That is why I had to write this bookto 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.

Melindas unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attentionfrom 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 worldand 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.
