Golda Meir: The fourth Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir spoke of the tension between her kibbutznik past and her role in Yom Kippur War. This quote was taken from book "As Good as Golda," wherein Meir spoke of the responsibility Jewish people had, not to the state of Israel, but to those who came before and did not survive the Holocaust.
When Golda Meir was Prime Minister of Israel, she was asked to place a curfew on women to end a series of rapes. However, Meir refused and replied, “But it is the men who are attacking the women. If there is to be a curfew, let the men stay at home".
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.
