Many defining moments guided Golda Meir’s incredible life journey. 

We invite you to gather with distinguished authors, renowned women’s studies experts, prominent museum professionals, and some of Golda Meir’s family and friends to explore Meir’s life-defining moments. We’ll explore the ways Meir broke down barriers on her life’s path and discuss how women’s empowerment, agency, and the power of sisterhood made her who she was. This symposium will help guide a future museum exhibit.
