Melinda Gates' first book is "The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World." (Pivotal Ventures/Jason Bell)

In Melinda Gates' childhood, she frequently watched rockets achieve their "moment of lift" when visiting her father at NASA. Her new book, "The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World," applies that concept to the process of uplifting women, both in her own community and globally. Filled with anecdotes about splitting household tasks with husband Bill Gates and tactics for fighting gender inequality worldwide, Gates' book argues that addressing gender discrimination makes any society more equitable for all.
