Forbes Israel Names Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked ‘Woman of the Year’

Forbes Israel has chosen Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked as the magazine’s “Woman of the Year.”

The prestigious annual list includes 50 of Israel’s most influential women in a broad range of fields, including politics, business and academics.

“I thank Forbes for choosing me as the most influential woman this year,” said Shaked. “The list is comprised of intelligent, capable and excelling women and it’s a great honor to me to lead this list….I will continue to work to promote the important issues on the agenda. During my two years in office at the Justice Ministry, I’ve broken many conventions, and I’m just getting started.”

Shaked, 41, is known for her strong nationalist tone. In her relatively young career as a politician, Shaked, a mother of two, has quickly risen through the ranks of the Jewish Home party.

Originally a software engineer for Texas Instruments in Israel, Shaked has been one of Jewish Home’s most outspoken and fervent members, championing legislation such as a nation-state bill that promotes the Jewish character of Israel and strongly opposes a future Palestinian state.
