Natalie Portman

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

Born in Jerusalem, Natalie Portman made her first appearance on the screen at the age of 12, her Broadway debut while she was still in high school and found time to graduate from Harvard in between filming the Star Wars prequel trilogy and acting in Chekhov’s The Seagull opposite Meryl Streep. The winner of an Oscar and two Golden Globes, Ms. Portman recently released Natalie Portman’s Fables – her debut picture book where three classic fables are retold with wit and wisdom – and is a long-time activist on behalf of animals, anti-poverty initiatives and women’s rights. That’s inspiration!

In conversation with Abigail Pogrebin.

Women Inspiring Women:
The Series

Who inspires the women who inspire us?

When you’re afraid you’re not brave enough to take that risky step, whose image do you conjure up to give you courage?

Who do you turn to — literally or figuratively — when you need the strength to say yes, or no, to a challenge, an opportunity or a proposal?

Whose story galvanizes you to be your best self?

We all have our role models, heroines and influencers who help us keep setting our bars higher and higher, who inspire us to take risks, who serve as our bulwarks against social pressure. But who plays that role in the lives of some of America’s most successful women?

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center has invited a series of intriguing and multifaceted women from dramatically different backgrounds to answer that question, to explore the role of “heroines” in their lives and to talk about how they’ve helped them become the women they are.
