Margaret Thatcher

On my drive to the train station this morning I was surprised to hear that Margaret Thatcher had passed away. I did not agree with her politics (in fact my political beliefs are on the opposite side of the political spectrum), but I do admire her as a pioneering woman in politics and as a female scientist. She was the first female prime minister of Great Britain and she was very tough and formidable leader and politician. She took the country to war in the Falklands. She was a trained chemist, and a lawyer, and a mother. For all my opposition to her politics, I still admire what she represented – women can succeed in politics and play a very active role in the governance of a country.
