Margaret Thatcher's life in pictures

Margaret Thatcher was the first woman ever to be British prime minister. She was in power between 1979 and 1990 - longer than any prime minister in the 20th century.
She became Britain's first female prime minister in 1979 and told voters that the Conservatives would cut taxes, bring down government spending and make it easier for people to buy their own homes.

After her death she is recognised as a prime minister who transformed the face of Britain - and will be remembered as one of the most important figures in modern British history.

In 1951 she campaigned for a seat in Parliament but lost on that occasion. She got enough votes in 1959 though, winning the Conservative seat of Finchley.
