Iron Lady

Allowing you to uncover the woman behind the 'Iron Lady' image, 'Iron Lady: The Thatcher Years' takes a thorough at the life and times of Britain's longest-serving twentieth-century prime minister. As both the first woman to become leader of a European country and the first British premier to achieve re-election for three consecutive terms, Margaret Thatcher's has left behind a long and hugely important legacy. Reflecting on her life and character, from her early days growing up as the daughter of a Lincolnshire grocer, to her years as one of the most powerful and controversial of leaders, through to her iconographic status as an international statesman and thinker, this study is accompanied by a selection of quotes by and about this formidable woman.

    He brought me up to believe all the things I do believe, and they are just the values on which I’ve fought the election. And it’s passionately interesting to me that the things that I learned in a small town in a very modest home are just the things that I believe have won the election.
