Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has been invited as an honorary speaker at Limmud FSU's New York area conference.
The conference, which will be held from April 1-3, is to feature the launch of a special photographic exhibition about the life of former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, together with a panel on female political leaders worldwide.
Clinton was invited after her statements last Monday at the AIPAC conference in Washington DC, in which she said, "some of us remember a woman, Golda Meir, who led the Israeli government decades ago and wonder what’s taking us so long here in America."
In its photo exhibit entitled "Where are all the women leaders? A tribute to Golda Meir," which is curated by Yoram Dori, Limmud FSU is to celebrate Meir as the only female leader in the Middle East in modern history.
Afterwards a special panel is to discuss the scarcity of female political leaders, and the impact of the situation on the world.
