Hasya Drori (Hebrew: חסיה דרורי‎, born Hasya Kupfermintz, 1899 – 3 June 1976) was an Israeli politician who served as a member of the Knesset for Mapai between 1949 and 1951.


Born in Gomel, in the Mogilev Governorate of the Russian Empire (present-day Belarus), Drori was a member of the Youth of Zion and HeHalutz youth groups. She made aliyah to Mandatory Palestine in 1922, and joined Gdud HaAvoda. In 1924 she was amongst the founders of moshav Kfar Yehezkel. She became a member of the Working Mothers Organisation, and also joined Mapai. In 1937 she travelled to the United States as an emissary for Mapai and the Histadrut trade union.

In 1949 she was elected to the first Knesset on the Mapai list and was known as a formidable feminist.[1] However, she lost her seat in elections two years later. She later worked in immigrant absorption.
