We are highlighting more suggested titles through the rest of December while we are waiting for the One Read reading panel to work their magic. You can find the other titles suggested so far to see what other readers have nominated.
“The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World” by Melinda Gates tells how she came to see in the connection between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. In Gates own words, “As women gain rights, families flourish, and so do societies. That connection is built on a simple truth: Whenever you include a group that’s been excluded, you benefit everyone. And when you’re working globally to include women and girls, who are half of every population, you’re working to benefit all members of every community. Gender equity lifts everyone.” The nominator of this book says that [t]his book will inspire you to look at every facet of your life and community and explore how to make it more equal.”
