A lively panel discussion marking the 40th anniversary of Margaret Thatcher's election as Prime Minister and the centenary of the Sex Disqualification Act.
Lady Arden, the Rt Hon the Lord Willetts, Anya Hindmarch, Cindy Gallop and Sacha Romanovitch discuss whether women do indeed have to behave like a man to be successful. Moderated by the Principal of Somerville College, Baroness Royall of Blaisdon, the discussion marks the 40th anniversary of Margaret Thatcher’s election as Prime Minister on the 17th May. The anniversary of this landmark event coincides with the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act that first allowed women to enter the professions. It also explores how far the political, professional and cultural environment has changed for women since then.
