Does a woman have to behave like a man to succeed in this world?
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. We would like to explore how far the political, professional and cultural environment has changed for women since then.
