In honour of the International Women’s Day here’s a list of 10 Jewish women today who, consistent with this year’s theme, inspire change. They are an intelligent, strong and impressive group; an inspiration for all women out there.
1. Sheryl Sandberg
Who hasn’t heard of the COO of Facebook’s movement Lean In?!
The proud Zionist
Don’t deny you love following her experiences while studying at HebrewU, traveling to Israel with or without her son Aleph?!
3. Dorit Beinisch
The first female to serve as the President of the Supreme Court of Israel, a position she held for almost six years.
4. Women of the IDF
The Shomer Shabbos convert
Married to Sacha Baron Cohen (yes, Borat), Isla now is proud of her Jewish connection and honouring Shabbat weekly.
6. Barbara Streisand
This “funny girl” has led the way for her entertainment industry colleagues.
Leading the charge for women’s fair equality.
8. Sarah Silverman
The funny lady
Always proud of her Jewish roots and open to using it in her skits.
The orthodox actress
You know you loved Blossom and her now nerdy (and tzniuit-dressed) Big Bang Theory character Amy.
