JERUSALEM — Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni and several American Jews, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, were included in Newsweek’s 150 “Women Who Shake the World.”
Livni was the only Israeli on the list.
The feature called Livni “one of the most powerful women in the country,” who is “known for her honesty and integrity.”
Among the American Jewish women appearing on the list are Giffords, the Arizona Democrat who stepped down from Congress as she recovers from being shot in the head during a constituents’ meeting; Jill Abramson, managing editor of The New York Times; Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, who leads the world’s largest LGBT congregation in Manhattan; and Roseanne Barr, an actress and Green Party activist.
