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 this candid and inspiring book, 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. A personal statement of passionate conviction, this book tells of Gates' journey from a partner working behind the scenes to one of the world's foremost advocates for women, driven by the belief that no one should be excluded, all lives have equal value, and gender equity is the lever that lifts everything

Dozens of influential leaders have heard the pleas of mothers and children in developing countries. Raising their voices to inspire a movement to increase healthy pregnancies and lower death rates, Melinda Gates, Kay Warren, Bill Frist, Kimberly Williams Paisley, Michael W.

AIDS Sutra : untold stories from India by A Chauduri( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"India is home to almost three million HIV cases, but AIDS is still stigmatized and shrouded in denial. It is stigma that leads to discrimination against HIV positive people in hospitals, schools, and even among families. Most importantly stigma fuels the belief that HIV is not our disease, but a disease of the other." "In this anthology some of India's best-known writers go on the road to tell the human stories behind the Indian epidemic and get to know this other: Kiran Desai travels to the coast of Andhra Pradesh, where the sex workers are considered the most desirable; Salman Rushdie meets members of Mumbai's transgender community; William Dalrymple encounters the devadasis, women who have been "married" to a temple goddess and thus are deemed acceptable for transactional sex. These writers travel the country to talk to housewives, vigilantes, gay men living double lives, police, and sex workers. Together their stories make up a complex - and gripping - picture of AIDS in India: who it's affecting, how, and why. Eye-opening, hard-hitting, and moving, AIDS Sutra presents a side of India rarely seen before."--BOOK JACKET

Hunger, Wohlstand und Moral Mit einem Vorwort von Bill und Melinda Gates by Peter Singer( )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanitäre Katastrophen, Hungersnöte, Epidemien, Flüchtlingskrisen - warum wir helfen müssen und in welchem Maß: 'Hunger, Wohlstand und Moral' ist einer der meistdiskutierten Essays der zeitgenössischen Moralphilosophie und in unseren Tagen aktueller denn je. Peter Singer macht deutlich, dass es unsere Pflicht ist, den Armen und Leidenden dieser Welt zu helfen, ganz gleich wo sie leben, ob vor unserer Haustür oder in fernen Regionen. Wer geben kann, gebe - und zwar viel. Singers Text ist radikal in seiner Unbedingtheit und sorgt seit seinem Erscheinen 1972 für heftige Kontroversen. Diese Neuausgabe, erweitert um eine Einleitung und zwei weitere Essays, zeigt, wie aktuell Singers Thesen noch heute sind, in Zeiten, in denen viele nichts wissen wollen vom Elend der Menschen, die ihr Leben riskieren, um zu uns zu gelangen, ins reiche Europa. Mit einem Vorwort von Bill und Melinda Gates. Peter Singer ist einer der bedeutendsten Moralphilosophen der Gegenwart. Nach Stationen in Oxford, New York und Melbourne hat er seit 1999 eine Professur für Bioethik in Princeton inne. Er hat mehr als zwanzig Bücher verfasst, darunter Leben retten, wie sich Armut abschaffen lässt - und warum wir es nicht tunund Effektiver Altruismus. Im Jahr 2014 wurde er auf der Liste der Global Thought Leaders des Duttweiler Instituts auf Platz drei geführt. Das Time Magazine zählte ihn zu den 100 einflussreichsten Menschen der Welt. Der gebürtige Australier lebt in New York und Melbourne

Power of women( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In den letzten Jahrzehnten hat sich das Leben von Frauen in der Gesellschaft grundlegend verändert. Frauen rund um den Globus treiben die Gleichberechtigung im 21. Jahrhundert weiter und weiter voran. Sie gehen neue Wege in der Politik und kämpfen sich in der Arbeitswelt bis an die Spitze. Sie fordern religiöse Institutionen heraus und brechen mit den Rollenerwartungen einer männlich dominierten Welt an sie. Aber vielerorts finden Formen der Unterdrückung von Frauen weiterhin statt: es kommt zu sexueller Gewalt, Frauen verfügen nicht über das Recht über ihren eigenen Körper, werden zum Opfer unterdrückender religiöser Praktiken, werden schlechter bezahlt als Männer oder haben keinen Zugang zu Bildung. Der Dokumentarfilm zeigt die Lebenswirklichkeiten inspirierender Frauen rund um den Globus und erzählt eine der größten Geschichten unserer Zeit: die der Neuausrichtung der Machtverhältnisse der Geschlechter hin zur Gleichberechtigung."

Spiccare il volo : quello che ho imparato dalle donne by Melinda Gates( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<<Quando sostieni e fai spiccare il volo a una donna, tutta l'umanità decolla. Il diritto di decidere se e quando sposarsi e con chi. Il diritto di andare a scuola. Il diritto a uno stipendio. Di lavorare fuori casa. Di uscire di casa. Di spendere il proprio denaro. Di creare un'attività commerciale. Di ottenere un prestito. Di avere proprietà immobiliari. Di divorziare. Di farsi visitare da un medico. Di candidarsi a una carica politica. Di guidare un'auto. Di andare all'università. Di decidere da sole se e quando avere figli. Tutti questi diritti sono negati alle donne in qualche parte del mondo>>. Da vent'anni, ormai, Melinda Gates si è data la missione di trovare soluzioni per le persone che vivono in estrema necessità, ovunque si trovino. Nel corso di questo viaggio, una cosa le è apparsa sempre più chiara: se si vuole che una società si innalzi, bisogna smettere di trattenere a terra le donne. In questo libro Melinda Gates condivide le lezioni che ha imparato dalle persone incontrate nel suo lavoro e nei viaggi intorno al mondo e che l'hanno maggiormente ispirata, e, per la prima volta, parla della sua vita personale e del cammino verso la parità intrapreso nel suo stesso matrimonio con il cofondatore della Microsoft, Bill Gates. Pagina dopo pagina, dimostra che, mai come oggi, abbiamo a disposizione le migliori opportunità per cambiare il mondo, e noi stessi
