Article History

Margaret Thatcher

Like her or loathe her, Britain’s first female prime minister made her way in a man’s world and changed the way we think of women politicians

There are many who might think Britain’s first female prime minister shouldn’t even be on this list, but in the end – after one of the most lively debates – our panelists felt she had to be. “What did she ever do for other women?” asked one, while another argued that a list without her would be ridiculous.

The final decision was that we couldn’t ignore her. “She broke through a man’s world . . . Growing up you thought, ‘Oh my God, there’s a woman prime minister.'”

On her election in 1979, she said: “The women of this country have never had a prime minister who knew the things they know. And the things that we know are very different from what men know.” But it never became clear what those things were. Thatcher froze child benefit and refused to invest in affordable childcare, instead criticising working mothers for raising a “crèche generation”. With the exception of Baroness Young, she promoted no women to her cabinet and no women above junior minister. She made statements such as “the battle for women’s rights has largely been won”, while the UK had among the worst maternity rights in Europe. Her template for the archetypal career woman – 18-hour working days, four hours’ sleep, all while giving the appearance of perfect wife and mother – set impossible standards that women today are still trying to live up to.

And yet she is also an inspiration, partly for showing that the daughter of a greengrocer could progress through education, determination and hard work. After becoming a chemist, paid less than her male colleagues, she studied part-time to become a lawyer, while looking after twins. She doggedly convinced the Conservative selection panel to let her stand as an MP, and quickly rose through the ranks, fighting a bloody battle to become leader in 1975.

Having a woman in the most important job in the country for the first time changed the cultural idea of what was possible for women. Thatcher was ambitious, tough and uncompromising, qualities rarely associated with, or admired in, women before her. She may not have done much for the careers of individual women, but she did. She changed the way female politicians were thought of – her decisions, such as waging war on the unions, or in the Falklands, may have been ruthless, but nobody now questions whether women politicians can be strong.

Women Business Owners Survived The Recession — But Sales Are Still Down

Women are a force to be reckoned with, especially in business. In the first comprehensive report of the recession’s effects on women business owners, the Center for Women’s Business Research, the National Federation of Independent Business and Chase took a close look at how women-owned businesses survived the downturn.

The report found that 45 percent of women-owned businesses concentrated on cutting business costs during the recession while 31 percent focused on increasing sales. Despite these and ongoing efforts, women business owners reported that their real volume sales still remain lower today than when the recession began in 2007.

While the recession proved to be a prolonged challenge, it also served as a learning period for many businesses, allowing them to see the true value behind both traditional and modern business strategies. See the infographic below for more results of the report.
