Margaret Thatcher, British Prime minister 1979-1991 achieved this name from her stern and unwavering beliefs, not expected from a woman. It's basically a nickname used to describe females heads around the world.

Iron Lady is a nickname that has frequently been used to describe female heads of government around the world. The term describes a "strong willed" woman. This iron metaphor was most famously applied to Margaret Thatcher, nicknamed so in 1976 by the Soviet media for her staunch opposition to communism.

Leaders who have earned the unofficial title (some of them postfactum) include:

* Golda Meir, the Prime Minister of Israel from 1969 to 1974
* Barbara Castle, a British left-wing politician (1910-2002).
* Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990
* Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany since 2005
