The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World is a personal statement of passionate conviction, telling of Gates’ journey from a partner working behind the scenes to one of the world’s foremost advocates for women, driven by the belief that no one should be excluded, all lives have equal value, and gender equity is the lever that lifts everything.

For the last twenty years, 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 her journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, invest in women. In conversation with Patty Stonesifer, the president and CEO of Martha’s Table.
