Abstract

Anne Phillips reflects on the legacy which Margaret Thatcher, the UK’s first female Prime Minister, left for women. This debate has tended to be a polarised one, with sweeping claims made on the basis of what is, in essence, a single case. Furthermore such claims have tended to distract from a broader assessment of Thatcher’s social and political legacy.
