The right to:
Spend your own money. Go to school. Earn an income. Access contraceptives. Work outside the home. Walk outside the home. Choose whom to marry. Get a loan. Start a business. Own property. Divorce a husband. See a doctor. Drive a car.
All of these rights are denied to women in some parts of the world.

A Sunday Times bestselling 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.'

In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares the stories of the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world and the lessons she’s learned from them. 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.

When we lift others up, they lift us up, too.

Krasne a motivacne citanie o tom, ako clovek , co ma "vsetko" podla mnohych...dokaze podporovat tych, ktori nemali to stastie. Tazke citanie, v tom, ake je to tazke snazit sa pomahat a vidiet , ze su to len zlomky v tom, aby sme boli uspesni. Krasne v tom, ked si uvedomime, ze prave tie male zlomky pomoci sa rataju a vytvaraju velke kroky. Bez toho to nejde, akokolvek sa to moze zdat dizmotivujuce. Ak obratime uhol pohladu a zameriame sa na to, ze kazdy zlomok pomoci (skor tej cez empowerment ) ako cez nepremyslene rozdavanie hmotnych veci, s ktorymi si ludia nie vzdy vedia poradit. Ze menej je niekedy viac.... Kazdy clovek, co nechce zatvarat oci , pred tym ze na tomto svete sme viaceri a sme si vsetci rovni, rovnako vnimajuci pomoc, podporu, lasku ....tuto knihu oceni, a mozno ho motivuje vo vlastnom zlomku toho, co moze pre svet...teda zaroven pre seba urobit.

Recenzie, kritiky

Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book charts her own evolution as a feminist and celebrates the stories of others who inspired her on her journey. It 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
