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?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)

A debut from Forbes'' third most powerful woman in the world, Melinda Gates, a timely and necessary call to action for women''s empowerment.

For the last twenty years, Melinda 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 this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, invest in women.

In this candid and inspiring book, Gates traces her awakening to the link between women''s empowerment and the health of societies. She shows some of the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to "turbo-charge" change. And she provides simple and effective ways each one of us can make a difference.

Convinced that all women should be free to decide whether and when to have children, Gates took her first step onto the global stage to make a stand for family planning. That step launched her into further efforts: to ensure women everywhere have access to every kind of job; to encourage men around the globe to share equally in the burdens of household work; to advocate for paid family leave for everyone; to eliminate gender bias in all its forms.

Throughout, Gates introduces us to her heroes in the movement towards equality, offers startling data, shares moving conversations she''s had with women from all over the world--and shows how we can all get involved.

A personal statement of passionate conviction, this book tells 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.
