Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher , was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. The longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century, she was the first woman to hold that office. As prime minister, she implemented policies that became known as Thatcherism. A Soviet journalist dubbed her the "Iron Lady", a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style.

Margaret Thatcher's About

[]

Britain's first female Prime Minister and leader of the British Conservative Party declared, "I fight on, I fight to win," and she did. She became the only British Prime Minister in the twentieth century to win three successive terms of office in two decades. She was not only one of Britain's most powerful Prime Ministers, but she was also one of the century's most divisive stateswomen, receiving both admiration and scorn from the people, particularly for her handling of labor unions. She elevated the Conservative Party from a minor player in Britain's lowest common denominator politics to a national champion. Her leadership style and radical views, which became known as 'Thatcherism,' earned her the moniker 'Iron Lady.' Her rise from a poor grocer's daughter to Secretary of State for Education and Science was marked by tenacity. Following her position as Prime Minister, she launched a new slew of economic initiatives aimed at reversing what she saw as the country's downward spiral. Margaret Thatcher was a woman of strong convictions who, while being persecuted, brought about significant change. She roamed British politics with aplomb and had a penchant for seizing opportunities, a skill that earned her the title of Britain's most admired, yet divisive, leader.
