Thatcher: A Lesson For We Women
Today we mark the passing of Margaret Thatcher - 'The Iron Lady' - and first, and only, female Prime Minister of Great Britain.
In her lifetime she had a phenomenal impact, both at home and overseas, and created a platform from which modern British politics has been shaped. When asked about her greatest achievement she replied, "New Labour."
Thatcher hauled a weak Great Britain out of its despair and led it, through a highly tumultuous period, to power once again; she took on the Unions, education and police reforms; led her country through ferrocious terrorist attacks on home soil; and even went to war.
She is famed for her no-nonsense approach, sheer determination and deep patriotism for her country.
A remarkable life and a remarkable legacy.
And all from a woman who was the daughter of a humble grocer.
We modern women must take note of the fact that Margaret Thatcher achieved what she did because of the woman she was.
