Amazing Woman Wednesday : the Iron Lady

April 4, 2018


"If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman"

I have always loved this quote by Margaret Thatcher.

I also love her nickname - the Iron Lady - how cool is that! 


Here is a short summary of facts about Margaret Thatcher for your inspiration:

  • She led Great Britain as prime minister from 1979 to 1990, the only woman to ever do so

  • She was considered the Ronald Reagan of Britain, and the two have been called ‘political soulmates’ 

  • She was a grocer’s daughter

  • In college she studied chemistry

  • She was married to Denis Thatcher for 52 years until his death in June 2003

  • In 1953 the couple had twins, Mark and Carol

  • Her policies were controversial, including taking on the nation's labor unions, forcing coal miners to return to work after a year on strike

  • She sought to keep Britain from surrendering any of its sovereignty to the European Union. "You turn if you want to," she said "The lady's not for turning." Another great quote!

  • She died at 87 of a stroke

The Iron Lady was a very fitting nickname for Ms. Thatcher and her legacy. 

What is a fitting nickname for you and your Legacy?   On Friday we will explore the important topic of Legacy Nicknames further. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday - go get em!  Katherine
