IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a Summary Of The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World by Melinda Gates and not the original book.

Uncover how empowering women is key to making the world a better place.
Gender equality has taken its rightful position as a major social issue in our world. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, problems that women all over the globe face on a regular basis have been placed front and center in media and social discourses. Whether it’s sexual harassment or the gender pay gap, discussions on gender equality and how it can be achieved are now more widespread than ever.
But while many of these discussions revolve around women’s rights in developed countries, less focus has been placed on the plight of women struggling through poverty in the developing world. While poverty creates unbearable hardships for all those it afflicts, women are disproportionately made to bear its burden.
In the blinks ahead, you’ll be led on a journey of personal discovery that the author experienced in her capacity leading one of the world’s largest charitable foundations. This journey has involved discovering the interlinked hardships that women go through on a regular basis. And while her foundation and others have gained a lot of ground, there is still a long way to go.
You will learn:
•How contraceptives ended up being the most empowering tool for women ever invented;
•Why hundreds of millions of women don’t go to secondary school; and
•How empowering female farmers could lift 150 million people out of food poverty.
