Don't Cry for Her, Israel

She was born in Russia, spent her adolescence in Milwaukee, immigrated to Israel to live and work on a kibbutz, and eventually rose to become that country's prime minister from 1969 to 1974. Once described by an admirer as "the only man" in the government, tough-looking and -acting Golda Meir was the epitome of the era's "you've come a long way, baby" slogan. Her life and leadership during the crisis of the Yom Kippur War is the subject of Golda's Balcony, a one-woman show with sitcom and stage star Valerie Harper (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) in the title role. Can Harper tackle the role of a female political leader on a balcony? Hey, if Madonna could do it...
