內容簡介

  多位紐約時代第一暢銷書作家力薦!
  富比世評鑑世界影響力第三女性,比爾與美琳達·蓋茨基金會(Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)共同主席Melinda Gates首部作品!


  「我們如何創造提升人類的契機,尤其是女性們?因為當女性的地位獲得提升,就能提升人性。」

  過去二十年來,Melinda Gates致力於為世界各地的人找出他們所面臨的最迫切的問題的解決之道。在這段過程中,Melinda心中有個念頭越發明晰:停止打壓女性,才能想讓社會向上邁進。

  Melinda走遍世界,碰上許多身具啟發故事的人們,並將其書寫於本書之中。如她所寫:「我寫這本書的宗旨便在於分享這些讓我更看清楚自己生命首要意義的故事,我希望能讓大家了解,無論我們身處何方,我們都能夠找出提高女性人權的方式。」

  舉凡孩童婚姻、節育管道不全,乃至工作場合性別不平等等急須被大眾注意的議題,都在Melinda的筆下扣人心弦地呈現著。此外,Melinda首次與讀者分享她的私人生活,以及她如何在自己的婚姻中步向平權。從中,她引領我們了解到,我們改變世界、改自己的機會何以受限。

  Melinda以真摯動人的筆觸,道出許許多多偉大女性背後的故事,以及人與人之間的連結所激盪出的火花是多麽璀璨又具啟發性。一本回應時代需求的作品,號召所有人為提升女性權力而行動!(文/博客來編譯)

  “The Moment of Lift is an urgent call to courage. It changed how I think about myself, my family, my work, and what’s possible in the world. Melinda weaves together vulnerable, brave storytelling and compelling data to make this one of those rare books that you carry in your heart and mind long after the last page.”―Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Dare to Lead

  “Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book is an urgent manifesto for an equal society where women are valued and recognized in all spheres of life. Most of all, it is a call for unity, inclusion and connection. We need this message more than ever.”―Malala Yousafzai

  "Melinda Gates's book is a lesson in listening. A powerful, poignant, and ultimately humble call to arms." ― Tara Westover, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller EDUCATED

  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 twenty 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 book, 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.

Review

  “An inspirational look at the need to empower women to make change in the world.” ―The Washington Post

  "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

  “The Moment of Lift is a book about gender equity and its golden thread is empathy. This book lifts up the voices of women and girls whose experiences have been entirely unlike Melinda’s own. They’ve taught her a great deal, and in this beautifully crafted and artful memoir, Melinda Gates invites the reader to learn from them too.” ―Paul Farmer, M.D., co-founder of Partners In Health

  “I think this is one of the best books I've ever read.” ― Warren Buffett
