Golda Meir (May 3, 1898)
Golda Meir started out the same as many of our grandmothers or great-grandmothers: she came to the United States with her parents, seeking a better life. But she became an American-style activist. Then she became a committed Zionist, moved on to Israel, and became a political leader and head of state. Hero!
