She acknowledges that females were not given the exact same opportunities as men, which they were not allowed to hold the top positions in federal government. She also reveals her own opinion that she would not want to be prime minister, as it requires an individual to offer themselves completely to the task. This quote highlights the difficulties that women dealt with in Thatcher's time, and the absence of opportunities readily available to them. It also reveals Thatcher's own personal views on the role of prime minister, and her belief that it requires a person to offer their all.
