Women Are Key Partners In Development

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists”: Why Development Begins with Women
Melinda Gates, co-chair and trustee of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, discusses the importance of involving women in development, writing, “Every day, all over the world, women and girls are proving that if we recognize them as vital partners in development, change is possible. The women and girls I meet are ready and willing to help drive development. But first, we have to make the effort to put them in the driver’s seat” (10/12).
