1979: Margaret Thatcher becomes Britain's prime minister

On May 3, 1979, Margaret Thatcher made history by becoming Britain’s first female prime minister. Her success was aided by ongoing labor strikes known as the Winter of Discontent. Once in power, Thatcher reduced social programs and enacted sweeping privatization of public housing and mining industries.
