Kathy Gyngell reports Lady Thatcher's view of feminism

"When it was suggested they were going to have a Minister for Women, I said 'Oh really', are they going to have a minister for men? ….. If you are sure of your talents and abilities you don't expect to be treated differently at work because you are a woman. Most able women I know – women who climb to the top, whether it be in broadcasting, whether it be in business, whether it be as a woman editor – got there through merit and that is their strength, their ability. Don't try to give the impression we need special treatment. We don't."

Lady Thatcher talking sense on feminism and special treatment for women.
