If you have looked at any paper today, you already know. Margaret Thatcher passed away today at age eighty-seven.
Years ago I was at a Christmas party at my department head’s home. On the wall was a picture of him and Margaret Thatcher – of course I asked him about the picture. This man who ran our department with the skills he learned in the armed services immediately softened up while he told me that she was the most ‘there’ person he had ever met, truly authentic. This discussion happened in the mid ’90’s and the article below is from People magazine in 1980. Imagine the changes in the workplace in those 15 years and the number of working mothers who returned.
She was an amazing woman all around – wife, mother and leader. A pioneer. She indicates her success comes from her upbringing, motherhood and being a woman.
