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 woman on the list.

“They are starting revolutions, opening schools, and fostering a brave new generation. From Detroit to Kabul, these women are making their voices heard,” Newsweek wrote on its partner The Daily Beast website in announcing the new annual feature.

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 the 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, a lesbian rabbi who leads the world’s largest LGBT congregation in Manhattan; and Roseanne Barr, an actress and Tea Party activist.

Other notable women on the list are U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actress and activist Angelina Jolie, British singer Adele and U.S. war correspondent Marie Colvin, who died in Syria last month.
