Melinda French Gates giving big money to protect Women’s Rights

Philanthropist and the founder of the charitable organization Pivotal, Melinda French Gates is doing her part to change the course of Women’s Rights.

Named one of the most powerful women in the world, French Gates announced that she’s donating $1B over the next two years to help protect the rights of women.

Many years ago, I received this piece of advice: “Set your own agenda, or someone else will set it for you.” I’ve carried those words with me ever since.

That’s why, next week, I will leave the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, of which I was a co-founder almost 25 years ago, to open a new chapter in my philanthropy. To begin, I am announcing $1 billion in new spending over the next two years for people and organizations working on behalf of women and families around the world, including on reproductive rights in the United States.
