The iconic Golda Meir (1898-1978), rose from humble beginnings to become Israel's fourth Prime Minister in 1969, when she was elected at the age of 70. She steered the fledgling Jewish State through some of its most dramatic and turbulent hours, notable the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Former Israeli Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Shimon Peres has likened Golda Meir to a "lioness" and "outstanding leader who never feared battle but never ceased to strive for peace."
