Published in late 2014 by Knopf, A Path Appears was turned into a three-part PBS documentary airing in January and February 2015 and was featured on numerous network television shows. They also co-authored Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, a No. 1 New York Times best-selling book about the challenges facing women around the globe.

As a Peace Corps nurse during the 1960s in Togo, West Africa, Ann Moore saw African mothers do something that she found very interesting: they carried their babies in fabric slings tied securely on their backs. Moore liked the closeness between babies and their mothers, and how the babies seemed so calm when carried in this way.When Moore came back home to the United States and decided to have her own child, she wanted to carry her baby in the same manner. Moore and her mother designed a carrier similar to the ones used by the women in Togo. Together, they came up with the original soft baby carrier, the Snugli®, as well as other kinds of specialized carrying cases. Due to their invention, mothers and fathers all over the world are able to ride bikes, cook and run errands while carrying their babies close to them.
