Margaret Thatcher is without doubt one of the most successful women of the 20th century. From roots in a grocer’s shop in Grantham, she gained a degree in chemistry at Oxford and later also took a law degree.
Margaret Thatcher then succeeded in doing what would have been unthinkable even twenty years earlier, by becoming Britain’s first female prime minister. Her firm handling, both of the Conservative party and of government policy meant she could also be a contentious figure, going down in history as ‘The Iron Lady’.
