Original caption: LONDON: She has been described as a "deceptively fragile-looking blonde house," but Margaret Thatcher, 49-year-old mother of 21-year-old twins, "is one of the toughest in-fighters in the largely men's world of British politics." This week the former education secretary in the 1970-74 Edward Heath government, was elected to the Conservative party throne from which she toppled former Premier Heath a week earlier. The victory made her Britain's first woman party leader and put her well in the running some day to become the country's first woman Prime Minister.
