In her first book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, Melinda Gates makes a bold claim: when we lift up women, we lift up humanity. After years of travel, humanitarian work and extensive research, Melinda introduces us to the women she’s met along the way. Their stories are brutally honest, gut-wrenching, inspiring and triumphant. They show us how, time and time again, empowered women rise up and bring their families and communities with them. Melinda also shares her own personal journey to achieving equality in her marriage, finding her voice and becoming an advocate for women and girls. She explains how the women she has met have called her to action. And at this critical moment, she calls us to action too—urging us to drive progress in our homes, workplaces and communities. The Moment of Lift will fill your heart with hope and the determination to empower yourself and others. It will also ignite your sense of urgency, leaving you convinced that equality can’t wait.Please RSVP to Melissa at: (847) 510-2060.
