Примечание редактора

What Barack Obama’s reading…

In a Facebook post about what he’d been reading in 2019, Barack Obama wrote, “Melinda [Gates] tells the stories of the inspiring people she’s met through her work all over the world, digs into the data, and powerfully illustrates issues that need our attention — from child marriage to gender inequity in the workplace. I’ve called Melinda an impatient optimist and that’s what she delivers here — the urgency to tackle these problems and the unwavering belief that solving them is indeed possible.”

Описание

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.”

For the last 20 years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, you need to stop keeping women down.

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

Melinda’s unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention — from 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 world — and 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.

    Her candid thoughts and insights should be heard by women all of over the world. She freely admits she has been fortunate to have opportunities not always available to women in the world- but instead of keeping these opportunities to herself she is choosing to create new opportunities for women all over the world.

    At the end, connecting with others, love, is the end goal. I grew up in a developing, poor country but I have not witnessed the extreme cases Melinda narrated in this book. I have deep respect for their foundation which trying to solve the hardest social problems of this world. They are not just giving money and donating stuff but addressing the root causes. They are the modern heroes the world needs.

    Nice to hear it read by the author herself. If you have yet to be convinced of the reality that women worldwide are born into disadvantage by recent history’s patriarchal system.. prepare to have your mind opened.

    “The goal is to be connected, belong and be loved, and love is what’s lift us up.”
    Melinda Gates shared her experiences of extremely powerful stories of each woman she met and how she got connected and help them boost their confidence and courage to fight for their rights and to show how to treat a woman.
    That women empowerment really change the culture, beliefs and the life of each woman she met, being a philanthropist like Melinda has a great responsibility because she’s the voice of a woman who will never heard from the other world of this society and she did a great job of writing this book to enlighten all the readers and give importance to all the woman in their life.

    The telling of a story, of how so many lives can be changed only if one person is persistent enough, consistent enough and determined enough. What an emotional audiobook to listen to. I am moved to act in the same way Melinda did, hopefully in spite of my small capacity.

    It touched my heart in a very profound way and I can relate to Melinda’s experiences on many levels. I wish I can meet her. I have never wanted to meet a famous person but Melinda is a real person who happened to be famous. God bless her and her amazing work

    So stimulating and important! I sincerely appreciated her candor when talking about quitting her job to have children. She is such a vital asset to Bill and I'm grateful she stepped out to reveal her strength and presence amidst all of his success. Her stories from her trips and all the foundation does are both frightening and motivating. Would love to work for an organization like hers.

    Amazing book. Well written and well narrated. This book beautifully chronicles the struggles of women, both in the private and public, and how helping them to overcome those challenges is in everyone's interest. This is a book for feminists and would be feminists. Read this book if you want to understand why feminism is important. Read this book if you are a man that wants to become an ally. Read this book if you want to built a successful business or family, if you want to be a better parent or partner to your spouse. Read this book because it matters.

    Melinda Gates speaks on finding your voice, and oh, what a voice she has found of her own! She is bright and compassionate. Her one message she reiterates over and over again is to gather in those who are on the margins. She has found women to be the core of the solution around the globe and has focused on helping women who then help all of society. She has story after story from people all over the world to illustrate her points. This book contains some powerful thinking, and I will definitely be pondering and acting on her ideas for years to come. I did not agree with everything she said, but appreciated that she did not ask me to. I did agree with and cheer on her fundamental message to lift others with love.

    Men, women and everyone with a different identity would benefit greatly from reading the stories Melinda has gathered from her philanthropic work. They are a deep reminder that all people deserve love and compassion, especially marginalized groups on the edges of society. We are not better than them, our circumstances were just better. Thank you Melinda for writing this book!
