The other Iron Ladies

The film The Iron Lady focused attention on Margaret Thatcher and her leadership of an otherwise male-dominated Conservative Party. In this blog post for History Workshop Online, I assesses how other cultural representations of Tory women produced in the immediate aftermath of Thatcher’s downfall show how less prominent female figures reflected on the position of women in the party. This forms part of my work on a book for Bloomsbury on fictional representations of politics – due out in 2013.
