The Moment of Lift
by Melinda Gates
Praise For This Book:
"An inspirational look at the need to empower women to make change in the world." -The Washington Post

"[The Moment of Lift] is 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

"Drawing on her vast experiences meeting women in far-flung corners of the developing world, Gates' book is a heartfelt memoir about stepping out of her comfort zone, as well as a manifesto of sorts about the transformative power of broadening women's rights." - Jessica Zack, San Francisco Chronicle

"At a time when beneficial globalization is being threatened by nationalism, and women's rights are in danger of being rolled back to nineteenth-century norms, Gates offers urgent reminders of why it's necessary to help women everywhere achieve their full potential." - Booklist, starred review

"Part memoir, part call to action, Gates's compassionate narrative underscores her determination to leave a positive mark on this world. She inspires and emboldens in this eloquently argued work."- Publishers Weekly

"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

"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

"The Moment of Lift is a gift to humanity. With concrete stories and examples, Melinda Gates helps us see and embrace the great truths - "The goal is for everyone to be connected. The goal is for everyone to belong. The goal is for everyone to be loved." Melinda's message is so real, so personal, so intelligent, so needed. If only everyone would read it and know it, we would all rise up together!" - Richard Rohr
