About the Golda Meir: Golda Meir Hebrew born Golda Mabovitch, 3 May 1898 December 1978 also known as Golda Myerson, was a teacher, kibbutznik and politician who became the fourth Prime Minister of the State of Israel. Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel on 17 March 1969, after serving as Minister of Labour and Foreign Minister. 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 Former prime minister David Ben-Gurion used to call Meir the best man in the government ; she was often portrayed as the strong-willed, straight-talking, grey-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people In 1913, she returned to North Division High, graduating in 1915. While there, she became an active member of Young Poale Zion, which later became Habonim, the Labor Zionist youth movement. She spoke at public meetings, embraced Socialist Zionism and hosted visitors from Palestine. She attended the teachers college, Milwaukee State Normal School, (now University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee) in 1916, and probably part of 1917. After graduating from Milwaukee State, she taught in Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). In 1917, she took a position at a Yiddish-speaking Folks Schule in Milwaukee. While at the Folks Schule, she came more closely into contact with the ideals of Labor Zionism. In 1913, she began dating Morris Meyerson, She was a committed Labor Zionist and he was a dedicated socialist. Together, they left their jobs to join a kibbutz in Palestine in 1921. In Palestine, the couple joined a kibbutz. Their initial application to kibbutz Merhavia in the Jezreel Valley was rejected, but in the end they were accepted. Her duties included picking almonds, planting trees, working in the chicken coops and running the kitchen. Recognizing her leadership abilities, the kibbutz chose her as its representative to the Histadrut, the General Federation of Labour. In 1924, she and her husband left the kibbutz and resided briefly in Tel Aviv before settling in Jerusalem. There they had two children, a son Menachem (born 1924) and a daughter Sarah (born 1926). In 1928, she was elected secretary of Moetzet HaPoalot (Working Women's Council), which required her to spend two years (1932 as an emissary in the United States.[8] The children went with her, but Morris stayed in Jerusalem. Morris and Golda grew apart, but never divorced Morris died in 1951. Meir was one of twenty-four signatories (two of them women) of the Israeli declaration of independence on 14 May 1948. She later recalled, "After I signed, I cried. When I studied American history as a schoolgirl and I read about those who signed the Declaration of Independence, I couldn't imagine these were real people doing something real. And there I was sitting down and signing a declaration of establishment." Israel was attacked the next day by the joint armies of Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan, and Iraq in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Size: Biography / True Life Story. Bookseller Inventory # 5028677
