Margaret Thatcher Showed the World What a Woman Can Do — The American Magazine, AEI -- "I stand before you in my Red Star Chiffon evening gown, my face softly made up and my hair gently waved … The Iron Lady of the Western World … A “cold war warrior,” an “amazon philistine” …Well, am I any of these things? [The audience shouts NO!] Well …Yes, I am the Iron Lady … if that is how they wish to interpret my defense of values and freedoms fundamental to our way of life."
Why Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan are my all-time heroes
Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. Margaret Thatcher inspires because she busted her butt and did so even after she was made prime minister. Ronald Reagan because he didn't pretend to know all about government. He was not afraid to admit he didn't know, but was willing to learn it.
