Golda Meir: Israel's first and the world's third woman to hold such an office, she was described as the "Iron Lady" of Israeli politics years before the epithet became associated with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Golda Meir (1898-1978). Signer of the Declaration of Independence of Israel, 1948. Israeli Ambassador to the U.S.S.R., 1948-1949. Minister of Labor of Israel, 1949-1956. Foreign Minister of Israel, 1956-1969. 4th Prime Minister of Isreal, 1969-1974. Leader of the Labor Party, 1969-1974. Born Golda Mabovitz. Known as Golda Meyerson (after her husband, Morris Meyerson), until 1956, when she adopted a Hebrew name.
I wish more leaders would do politics with their heart, instead of using lies and scary tactics as excuse to invade countries - as we have seeing in our very recent history! We would be a lot better off if more women had the power in America!
