No Comments

Are women leaders by definition into feminism?

February marks the 49th anniversary of Golda Meir being elected prime minster (she would not take office for another month) following the death of Levi Eshkol. Dr. Bat-Sheva Margalit Stern [1], associate professor of history at the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies [2], contrasts the leadership of Meir, who disavowed feminism, with the leadership of Ada Fishman Maimon, an advocate of feminism, one of the founders of Women Workers Movement and a member of Knesset.

Watch the video to learn more about Meir and Maimon’s differing leadership styles and feminism.
