Holding a copy up next to his head, the U2 singer begins, "At [the] One [Campaign] we say that poverty is sexist, because it is and because poverty saves its worst for women and girls."
Bono then addresses the author, saying, "So Melinda my friend, thank you for this book and your clear and compelling voice. In the fight to lift women up you are the lead singer and I am proud to be your tambourine player, your background singer, your roadie. I would carry your case any day. You lead and I will follow."
