Bill and Melinda Gates Are Divorcing

The couple’s separation is likely to send shock waves through the worlds of philanthropy, public health and business. ...

@dredmorbius I can't help thinking of how Mackenzie Scott blossomed as philanthropist once she sloughed off Bezos.

@babelcarp I keep getting a Melinda & Mackenzie / Thelma & Louise vibe off of this.

@dredmorbius It’s already happening:

«The recent example of MacKenzie Scott, who divorced the Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and went on to a higher profile as a solo philanthropist than she ever had in the marriage, cannot have escaped Ms. French Gates’s attention. Indeed the two women worked together on Ms. French Gates’s project on women and power, the Equality Can’t Wait Challenge.»
