Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first female prime minister died Monday after suffering a stroke. She was 87. Thatcher made history by becoming the first female prime minister in 1979 and held the position until 1990. She was called “The Iron Lady” by the Russian press for her iron-clad ways. Lady Thatcher formed an alliance with President Ronald Reagan, sharing many of his conservative views, and guided the U.S. and the Soviet Union though the Cold War.
“I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end."
