World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth presents Francine Klagsbrun
The World Affairs Council's Women of Strength: The Jewish Female Heritage Series would be incomplete without focusing on the Milwaukee schoolteacher who became the leader of Israel. Golda Meir became a symbol of the power of women and their ability to run nations and deal with international crises and challenges.
To present an authoritative examination of this legendary figure’s life, the Council turns to author and feminist, Francine Klagsbrun, whose latest book is Lioness: Golda Meir and The Nation of Israel. It is described as the “definitive biography” of “the iron-willed leader, chain-smoking political operative, and tea-and-cake-serving grandmother who became the fourth prime minister of Israel and one of the most notable women of our time."
