The first lady of Israel, ‘ Michal Herzog,’ has made an update about receiving the ”Power of Esther” award on Wednesday, 16 November, at the 100th committee of the Hadassah Women’s Organization. The first lady has made the following update via President Isaac Herzog’s official handle.
The Hadassah Women’s Organization honoured the first lady of Israel, ‘Michel Herzog,’ with the award in the spirit of how much women can steer an entire nation. Michal is an Israeli Lawyer by occupation who graduated from Tel Aviv University. Herzog had also served on the board of directors of Ma’aleh, an organization that promotes responsibility issues and the development of responsible management standards in Israel.
Furthermore, Issac Herzog also stated ”that in the current situation, the voice of women is clearer than ever. The female perspective and opinions are equally valued and respected”. The President also noted that the nation hopes that more women would join the leadership roles in the public space in Israel.
The President of Israel uploaded a photograph from the event on his social media account, showing ‘Michal Herzog’ receiving the award.
The ‘Queen of Esther’ award is considered as a symbol of leadership among women in Israel. Through this organization, the women of Israel are encouraged to take part in leadership and supervision roles in the Israeli Public Space. The organization has become the symbol of women’s empowerment in Israel, with an increasing number of women joining the cooperation.
The ‘Hadassah Women Organization’ was named after ‘Queen Esther’, a woman who lived in the Persian diaspora. She became the queen after she found favour with the king. She risked her life to save the Jewish people from demolition when ‘Harman’, a court official, persuaded the king to authorize a culture against the Jews of the kingdom.
Many people expressed their best wishes and congratulations in the comment section of the social media account of the Israeli Prime Minister, which read as follows;
”You deserve it.
The pleasantness of your walks and your informed choices in your public doing confirms the prize.”
Meanwhile, some people with a different opinion expressed their feelings towards the government, which read as follows;
“An era in which the voice of women is clearer than ever” What an embarrassing sentence. A Knesset with an extreme underrepresentation of women, about half of them in the population, and the President’s wife who writes such embarrassing sentences that emphasize the stickiness in the lack of speech as a thing that is not in it. You could have written that at a time like this, the female voice is of greater importance than ever or that it should remind us of a certain value of equality that is being played out (or, trampled), and you chose an empty statement that won’t upset anyone because it has no meaning.
