Woman's Hour is marking its 70th Anniversary by creating the Power List of women who have most affected our lives in that time.

The winner is Margaret Thatcher. Whatever you think of her she showed that a woman could be prime minister. She was a trail blazer. 

Some of us who were around during the 80s and remember the huge impact she had on our country and our lives recall her fondly and with great admiration.

Who can forget her conference speeches "You turn if you want to. The lady's not for turning"

I did have the honour to meet her briefly and she had huge presence.

Well done Maggie!!
