Abstract : Golda Meir was one of the extraordinary strategic leaders of the twentieth century. A woman of immense stamina, drive, and charisma, she played a major role in every phase of the political and military struggle that led to the creation of the State of Israel. From pre-nation strife to recognized statehood, Golda Meir was relentless in her quest to realize her dream of a unique society where Jews determined their own destinies. Her unswerving devotion, however, came at great personal cost. This study addresses the ethical dilemmas of Golda Meir as she sought to reconcile her complete absorption with her ideals with parental expectations, traditional responsibilities and duties of wife and mother, and how she came to grips with the her most challenging experience as Prime Minister of Israel.
