 More about the book!

Pan Macmillan South Africa and The Nelson Mandela Foundation are pleased to announce that Melinda Gates – philanthropist, businesswoman and author of the bestselling book The Moment of Lift – is coming to South Africa!

Melinda Gates is listed as the third most powerful woman in the world according to Forbes magazine. Melinda is using this power to encourage citizens around the world to get active in improving their communities. Along the way, she has realised that the quickest way to do this is by uplifting and bettering the circumstances of women.

In The Moment of Lift we meet Melinda at the very beginning of her journey of women empowerment, showing us that we all start somewhere, at the very base often asking ‘how’. Her first step to committing to the lift was the issue of family planning — giving women the ability to choose when they to have children gives them the opportunity to map out their lives in an empowering and intentional way.

Written with emotion, candour, and grace, she introduces us to remarkable women and shows the power of connecting with one another.
