Skip to comments.No way to treat a lady

When it comes to the feminist version of history (sorry herstory!), its hurrah for Gloria Steinem. She started a magazine nobody ever read. And cheers for Billie Jean King, the tennis player who proved a young professional athlete could beat a 55-year-old slob.
Give it up for Indira Gandhi and Hillary Clinton, who proved that you could sweep into power on the coattails of your dad or husband, and by all means let us celebrate Oprah Winfrey, who proved that you could spin mystical mumbo-jumbo, airy empowerment talk and perpetual wounded victimhood into a billion-dollar sisterhood racket.
What about the most important woman of the 20th century, Margaret Thatcher, the subject of this weeks Oscar contender The Iron Lady? Here feminists get quiet. Demure, even. They let the gentlemen take over the conversation while they retreat to the next room.
Or else they attack her.

Amazing how God orchestrated the rise of three individuals in the 1980s, against all odds, who together ensured the freedom of hundreds of millions of people—Reagan, Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II.
Thank you for posting this. The last line about Thatcherism reminds me of someone. For the life of me, I can’t remember who it is.
Reminds me of how they treat a certain American lady. Her name slips my mind at the moment...+
Yes. I thought the battle was won at the time. Then New World Order happened.
Not to sound “insensitive”, but we’ve had a black man become president before a woman....and it looks like it will still be a long time before a woman becomes president in this country.
As an observation, the way the media and other candidates have treated Michele Bachmann is totally insulting.
That’s a great article.
It’s funny how all the scum-ugly cows hated Thatcher the same way they hate Sarah Palin here in America. The parallels between the two women - - and the way other women get their cat claws out for them - - are there for all to see.
I really wish Palin would jump into the GOP race.
Wow, that picture sure brings back some vivid memories of when I still had some optimism about the country and its future and its leadership. Been a long, long time since experiencing anything remotely like that (with the intermittant exceptions of when I hear Palin giving a speech).
What a beautiful picture, a time of decency.
You are comparing Sarah Palin to Margaret Thatcher? Really?
Gimme a break.
I'm comparing only how the two conservative women are treated by cows with claws.
Who can forget Nina Burleigh proclaiming that she'd get down on her knees for Clinton - - and presumably for every other male senator and congressman - - because he "protected" a woman's "right" to murder her own partly born baby?
I will always be proud to call Ronald Reagan my “Commander-in-Chief”.
Others prophesied the decline of the West. (Reagan) inspired America and its allies with renewed faith in their mission of freedom.
Others saw only limits to growth. He transformed a stagnant economy into an engine of opportunity.
Others hoped, at best, for an uneasy cohabitation with the Soviet Union. He won the Cold War, not only without firing a shot, but also by inviting enemies out of their fortress and turning them into friends.
God, what I would give to have those two back in control.
I would sleep better at night.
Thatcher: We here still move in twilight, but we have one beacon to guide us that Ronald Reagan never had. We have his example.
As I remember in the late 80s early 90s, the college feminists were still anti-pornography. It was still one of the very few points of contact between religious folks and feminists—which I think the latter didn’t appreciate much, but it was still there.
Camille Paglia, much I as I like her on some other topics, had much to do with laying the groundwork for “liberating” feminism from that attitude. But yeah, I think the Clinton scandal was the final nail in the coffin.
It wouldn't be enough I'm afraid. It's not just that we've changed leadership, we've hollowed ourselves out morally as a country. Our current "leaders" are just a symptom of the underlying disease rotting out our national soul.
At this point, a Reagan or Thatcher can't fix us. We need to be smacked in the face by the stark reality of a Depression or (God forbid) worse, and pray like mad that it finally wakes us up.
Pride in his ‘boys’ radiates off that man!

Unfortunately, I agree with you.
That’s a great post.
Thanks for that.
