Melinda Gates sits and talks in a group.
Here’s a sentence I never dreamed I’d get to write: On April 23, my first book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, will hit the shelves. I’ve been working on it for a long time, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to share it with the world.

This book is a chance to tell my story, but, much more importantly, it’s a chance to share the stories of the extraordinary women I’ve met through my work. By sharing their stories with me, they called me to action. By sharing their stories in my book, I hope to do the same for others.

I also get personal about what gender equality has meant to me in my own life. I write about why I chose to leave my career at Microsoft to stay home with our three children—and how Bill and I have worked together to make our partnership more equal, both at home and at our foundation. These things weren’t always easy to write about, but I hope that by the end of the book, readers will feel like they’ve gotten the chance to know me a little better.

If you’d like to be one of the first people to start reading, you don’t have to wait until next month. Enter your email address below, and I’ll send you the introduction.

It explains what the phrase “moment of lift” means to me and why I believe that this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

I hope it makes you want to read more.
