Iron Lady - Background of Margaret Thatcher

Charles Moore, Margaret Thatcher's authorized biographer - whose book about her will be released after her death - discusses his subject's background in this clip from "Uncommon Knowledge," sponsored by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

As a woman, trying to break through into a man's world, Margaret Thatcher had a strike against her.  Coming from England's East Midlands, instead of an aristocratic background, she had another obstacle to overcome.  Charles Moore gives some insight into how she turned those negatives into strengths.
