Rainbow Quiz - Identify the personality - Week 7

Here is the next weekly "Rainbow" quiz , where I would be giving 7 clues (Hence the name Rainbow) about a personality. Try to discover the person in the least number of clues . You can either leave the answer as a comment / email me . Feedback/ suggestions welcome. Googling is not preferred but then its just for fun and so go ahead if you need to.

Here is the personaliy for the week.I can faintly remember reading her biography years ago.A very inspirational leader.

clue # 1 : "X" was born in the Russian empire , educated in the US and later became the Prime Minister of "Y" (Y is a country not a person).

clue # 2 : Her first official position in the independent country (Y) was as a ambassador to her place of Birth - Soviet Union.

clue # 3 : Mr."Z", the first prime minister of Y, described her as the "only man in the cabinet" .

clue # 4 : X came out of retirement in 1969 to become the first woman prime minister of her country .

clue # 5 : She was known as the "Iron lady" perhaps years before Maragaret Thatcher came to be known by that nickname.

clue # 6 : Her last name when translated into the official language of Y means " makes a light".

clue # 7 : Ingrid Bergman portrayed her in a TV movie while Anne Bancroft portrayed her in a "one woman play" in Broadway.
