內容簡介


蓋茲基金會創始人比爾‧蓋茲之妻梅琳達·蓋茲首部親筆作品
探索女性的躍升時刻,如何為女性賦予能量,讓她們在職場舞台上獲得更深遠的貢獻與發展
「梅琳達闡述了一個脆弱而勇敢的動人故事,當我闔上最後一頁時,那股震撼的力量依舊在我的心頭深處盤旋。」─暢銷書《勇於領導》作家Brené Brown

過去20年,梅琳達·蓋茲一直致力為擁有緊急需求的人們找到解決方案,無論他們身在世界的何方。在歷經無數的拯救之旅,她的目標與方向越來越清晰:我們該如何推動人類社會的進步?女性躍升之時,便是社會進步之時。

梅琳達透過這部作品,分享她在旅途及工作中遇到許多啟發她的女性與人生故事。梅琳達詳盡及令人難忘的敘述,得到了大量的支持,因為她提出許多最需要人們關注及正視的問題─從童婚到無法獲取避孕藥物,甚至到職場上性別不平等的對待等議題。這也是她首次在書中提及她的私人生活,以及她如何在自己的婚姻中追求平等的道路。整本作品不斷提醒人們仍有多次的機會可以改變這個世界,甚至改變自我。

她的文筆動人、坦率且優雅,她向讀者分享許多非凡的女性,也展示女性之間相互聯繫所產生的巨大力量,提升自我,也一同創造女性躍升時刻。

For the last twenty years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission.

Her goal, as co-chair of the Bill and 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.

Candid and inspiring, in The Moment of Lift, 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 equality is the lever that lifts everything.
