Movie: The Iron Lady

1. Maryl Streep....need I say more.

2. Not at all what I expected, to see Lady Thatcher in contrast between her strength as prime minister and frailty later in life.

3. Inspiring lady.

Some memorable quotes from the movie (ones that might strike home for any young women looking to rise in a make dominated field....academia for instance)

"I will never be one of those women, who stay silent and pretty on the arm of her husband. Or remote and alone in the kitchen doing the washing up for that matter. One’s life must matter, Denis, beyond all the cooking and the cleaning and the children. One’s life must mean more than that. I cannot die washing up a teacup."
"Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t."
"With all due respect, sir, I have done battle every single day of my life and many men have underestimated me before. This lot seem bound to do the same, but they will rue the day."
And finally this last one, which maybe everyone should hold closely.

"Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become...habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny! What we think we become."
