Let’s look at those areas, which is believed to be Melinda can work on these areas with her money.
Melinda herself has said that there is structural inequality in the lives of women and girls. For this, he started a company called ‘Pivotal Ventures’ in 2015. According to a CNN report, these companies focus on women-centric efforts and increase women’s participation in various fields.
