Moment of Lift Books, created by Melinda French Gates in partnership with Flatiron Books, is an imprint dedicated to publishing original nonfiction by visionaries working to unlock a more equal world for women and girls.
Radical Inclusion offers a step-by-step guide for anyone wanting to play a role in making the world a more inclusive place, drawing universal lessons from the movement David Moinina Sengeh led in Sierra Leone to protect pregnant girls’ right to go to school.
As a lifelong reader, I’m a deep believer in the power of books and their ability to call us to be our best selves — smarter, kinder, more informed, more empathetic.
In 2019, I published my first book, The Moment of Lift, to share the stories of women I’ve met through my work. With the help of readers like you, The Moment of Lift became a New York Times bestseller, and those stories reached more people than I would have ever thought possible.
The experience of sharing The Moment of Lift with the world made two things very clear to me: First, there are many more stories that need to be told. Second, there are others who need the chance to tell them.
Those convictions led me to partner with Flatiron to create Moment of Lift Books, an imprint dedicated to publishing original nonfiction by visionaries working to unlock a more equal world for women and girls. I’m excited to have this chance to amplify important voices and keep gender equality at the center of the conversation.
