If you read our “Books We’re Looking Forward to in 2019” post, you might remember that I was excited about the prospect of reading Melinda Gates’s book. Despite the fact that it’s not my usual type of book, I was interested in reading it because of the blurb and because it was written about some of the work supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - specifically about the work they do to support women. The title of the book refers to Gates’s primary point: “If you want to lift society up, invest in women.”
It is the second month of 2019 and I have to tell you guys - I am struggling to keep my New Year’s Resolutions going. I thought I'd review this book because it gave me an excuse to reread a book with a lot of body image-related themes, in the hope that it would give me a boost of confidence to help push me through February.
