Last June, Melinda French Gates and MacKenzie Scott launched the Equality Can’t Wait Challenge, an intense contest to identify the best ideas for helping to expand women’s power and influence in the United States by 2030. One year later, the challenge is complete, and on Thursday, Gates’ incubation and investment firm Pivotal Ventures announced the four winners, each of which will receive a $10 million award to continue their work.
