No, it's not a spaceship that landed in Beer Sheva.
It's just part of SCE Sami Shamoon College.
It is an engineering school; can you tell?
On Monday the sign welcomed us to a conference called Movilot Shinui, meaning women who are bringing in and leading change.
It was for International Women's Day.
The speaker of honor was a member of the Israeli cabinet, Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked.
She told her life story and how she made it to such a high position.
She seems so young to have done all that.
Coffee break was inside the glass "spaceship," with a nice view of the campus lawns and the growing southern city of Beer Sheva.
Over a dozen highly educated, highly successful professional women gave 7-minute TED talks, telling their inspiring life stories.
The lady in the photo is an Israeli Arab who bravely overcame all obstacles to advance in her engineering education, research, and career.
She had the large audience laughing and cheering with her animated and impassioned message.
She told the Bedouin students present never to let their future husbands' families pay the traditional "bride price" for them, not is camels and not in gold, because then they feel and act like they own you.
The Bedouin women here in the Negev are actually in the forefront to advance the rights of women in their society and I applaud them.
Happy International Women's Day!
