Leadership and Women's Education

At a time of gender angst in our nation, I am fascinated by the two “iron ladies” that had a profound impact on the 20th Century – Margaret Thatcher and Golda Meir. I recently came across a quote from Meir that reminded me of the transformative power of education: “Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” Both women came from very humble backgrounds and it was education, I would argue, that gave them the power to transform their respective nations, the U.K. and Israel.
