”Lioness – Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel” by Francine Klagsbrun

Book Cover

In the days of #MeToo and #TimesUp, it was fascinating to read about the life of Golda Meir, who disdained feminists, but whose image was coopted by feminists for their famous poster “But Can She Type?” The accomplishments of this woman, who emigrated from Kiev to the US, then on to Palestine, who was part of the Second Aliyah, or generation of builders of the Jewish State, who worked 14 to 16 hour days all her life, were awe-inspiring to me. Her triumphs and major failures, her joys and sorrows are portrayed unflinchingly in this book. I recommend it to all those who like well-written and unbiased biographies, and are historical buffs.
