Melinda Gates — THE MOMENT OF LIFT - with Luvvie Ajayi Jones

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 8:00pm

Flatiron Books & Politics and Prose are excited to welcome Melinda Gates for her launch event of the paperback of THE MOMENT OF LIFT.

All tickets include a paperback copy of The Moment of Lift and a special signed bookplate, while supplies last.

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 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.

Gates will be in conversation with Luvvie Ajayi Jones, a New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and podcast host who thrives at the intersection of comedy, media, and justice. Her debut book I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual was released to critical acclaim, and her new book Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual drops on March 2.
