Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 8 April 2013) Thatcher was the first — and still only — female prime minister in Britain's history.  She rescued Britain from ruin & laid the groundwork for an extraordinary economic renaissance, during her 11 year term.  Known as the "Iron Lady", a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics & leadership style, she simply would not allow Britain to be pushed around, particularly by military dictators.

In 1984 Martin Shakeshaft spent 12 months photographing the Miners' Strike in the UK. The dispute started when the Conservative government, led by Margaret Thatcher, announced the closure of Cortonwood Colliery in Yorkshire. This was to be the first of 20 pit closures with the loss of 20,000 jobs. The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) responded by calling for a national strike.
