Margaret Thatcher How I Became Iron Woman?

Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of Britain, was given this name because she was so stubborn that she never wavered from her decisions.

But here we are in the process of analyzing how Thatcher got to that position, what about its inception, and what lessons were learned from that.


The beginning and emergence

Thatcher was born Margaret Hilda Roberts on October 13, 1925 in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Her father was a merchant and had a grocer at home.

Thatcher spent most of her time in the grocery store, reading, and she was an outstanding student who took first place over her school as the best student in the year (1942-1943).

She was known to excel and strive hard to study and she used to practice sports. She learned many hobbies, including playing the piano, and she did not practice swimming, walking and hockey.

She studied at Oxford University and won a scholarship to study chemistry, she graduated in 1947 and received a  class honors degree, then worked as a chemical researcher and then worked for several companies

What is noticed here was that she was persistent, willing to learn until she got what she wanted

But she was looking to another place and another life, as she knew that this was only her first stop

The stage of life change

She was chosen to chair the Conservative Association at the University of Oxford in 1946. She was influenced by the speech of Friedrich von Hayek – who taught her at the university – that authoritarian regimes lead to economic disruption in the country and after her graduation from the university she worked in the chemical sector, and then moved to Colchester, Essex. She then joined the local Conservative Association there and represented this association at the Conservative Party conference in London. There she was introduced to one of her friends from the University of Oxford who is the chair of the Dartford Conservative Society in the city. At that time, the assembly’s executive directors were looking for candidates for parliament. He was chosen as a member of the assembly in January 1951, even though his name was not on the list of candidates for the Conservative Party. After announcing his victory as an interpreter for the Conservative Party, he divorced his wife during a business dinner and was known as (Dennis Thatcher) a wealthy businessman. In order to prepare for the elections further, he moved to his place in Dartford and at that time Thatcher continued working in the chemical sector, and she was a member of the team that developed the technology of the disappearance of Ice Cream of thaw

Then in 1951 she married a wealthy industrialist who encouraged her to engage in political work

The stage of political action, then the launch to the top

IIn 1959 she went into the House of Commons, winning the “protected” Conservative seat of Finchley in northern London. She rose consistently inside the gathering, filling in as a parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance (1961–64), as boss resistance representative on schooling (1969–70), and as secretary of state for instruction and science (1970–74) in the Conservative administration of Edward Heath. While an individual from the Heath bureau (Thatcher was just the subsequent lady to hold a bureau portfolio in a Conservative government), she killed a program that gave free milk to schoolchildren, inciting a tempest of debate and provoking adversaries in the Labor Party to insult her with cries of “Thatcher the milk snatcher.” She additionally made more thorough schools—presented by the Labor Party during the 1960s to make thorough scholarly instruction accessible to average kids—than some other training pastor ever, however they were subverted during her residency as head administrator. After Heath lost two progressive races in 1974, Thatcher, however low in the gathering pecking order, was the main pastor arranged to challenge him for the gathering authority. With the sponsorship of the Conservative traditional, she was chosen pioneer in February 1975 and hence started a 15-year authority that would change the substance of Britain.

Thatcher drove the Conservatives to a definitive constituent triumph in 1979 after a progression of significant strikes during the past winter (the supposed “Winter of Discontent”) under the Labor Party legislature of James Callaghan. As an executive speaking to the recently vivacious traditional of the Conservative Party (the “Dries,” as they later called themselves, instead of the old-style moderate Tories, or “Wets”), Thatcher pushed more prominent autonomy of the person from the express; a finish to supposedly over the top government obstruction in the economy, including privatization of state-possessed undertakings and the offer of public lodging to occupants; decreases in uses on social administrations, for example, medical services, schooling, and lodging; impediments on the printing of cash as per the monetary regulation of monetarism; and legitimate limitations on worker’s organizations. The term Thatcherism came to allude to these arrangements as well as to specific parts of her moral standpoint and individual style, including moral absolutism, savage patriotism, an enthusiastic respect for the interests of the individual, and a contentious, solid way to deal with accomplishing political objectives.


Why were you called the Iron Woman?

Because she was and was still stubborn in her decisions.

When she was the Minister of Education and Science, she issued a decision to reduce expenditures due to the economic weakness in the country and also decided to prohibit the dispensing of free milk to children from the age of five to ten

And when she assumed the role of prime minister, she stood in front of the trade union strikes fiercely and won and prevented them from achieving any privilege.

She was not stubborn in making the mistake, but rather she was doing the right thing according to the possibilities and implementing her policies, even if it was difficult for some.

Lessons learned:

1- Good learning and diligence

2- Read and learn more

3- Thinking atypical

4- Path diversion and self-realization attempt

5- Insisting on being true to yourself and believing in what you do

6- Not to be afraid of failing to make fateful decisions even if some disagree with you

7- Discover your talent and try to achieve your dreams

8- Do what you love so that you love what you do

Finally, Margaret Thatcher really deserves to be the iron woman and also deserves to be immortalized in British history, capers of historical figures.
