Melinda Gates

Thank you so much, @sherylsandberg, for your generous and humbling words in the #TIME100 list. I am committed to doing everything I can to live up to them. As incredible as it is to be on a list like this one, I also know that the real work of changing the world is being done far from the headlines. It’s being carried out by the women and girls whose everyday actions, decisions, and extraordinary courage are shaping a better future for all of us. They’re running farms, working in clinics, borrowing money from each other to start businesses, and walking long miles to get access to the contraceptives they need to plan their futures. And most of all, they’re standing up for themselves and each other by coming together to insist on bringing us closer to a world where our daughters have the same chance to reach their potential as our sons. ・・・ #Repost @time: Melinda Gates is one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2017. “Her vision for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has helped lift the lives of millions of people. Its work reflects her impatient optimism,” writes Sheryl Sandberg, the founder of LeanIn.org. “Her ability to think big and move fast. Her love of numbers. (Bill’s not the only data geek in the family.) Her passionate commitment to empowering women and girls, seen in the foundation’s support for increasing access to contraceptives in developing countries. Her fundamental belief in human dignity. It’s all there, woven tightly into the DNA of one of the most ambitious and generous philanthropies in history.” See the full list on TIME.com/time100.
