    “Although the Queen would be amused to be called a feminist icon, her success as a wise, steadying counsel to 12 prime ministers has been a wonderful, subliminal advert for female power.

    In a newspaper column of 1952, shortly after her accession to the throne, one writer argued that, “if, as many earnestly pray, the accession of Elizabeth II can help to remove the last shreds of prejudice against women aspiring to the highest places, then a new era for women will indeed be at hand”. The columnist’s name was Margaret Thatcher.”
