Golda Meir was the original and ultimate Zioness––a trailblazing world leader who was unabashedly progressive and unapologetically Zionist in everything she pursued.
Inspired by social justice, equity and equality, and engaged in movements she learned about as a child while sitting at her sister’s kitchen table, Golda was a passionate activist both in the U.S. and in Israel. She fought tirelessly to advance progressive values in every role she held throughout her life, and understood the importance of cultivating supportive partnerships while advocating for the Jewish people and the Jewish nation.
Zioness leaders have been inspired by Golda, and driven to pursue her legacy, since long before our organization was founded in 2017. With a mission to equip and inspire Jews and our allies to show up in social justice spaces as proud Zionists, Zioness activists partner with organizations fighting to advance a range of progressive issues including reproductive rights, climate justice, voting rights, LGBTQ+ equality, and so much more. We are committed to building leaders, including among women, who embody our progressive values––including our Zionism.
Here at Zioness, we know what Golda knew: that women, and Jews, belong at every progressive table, and that human rights and social justice will not advance without our proud and steadfast participation.
