Margaret Thatcher's victory in the 1975 leadership election for the conservative party broke a tradition in Britain. The first female leader of an important political party was to raise intense media speculation about the issue of gender, especially during Thatcher's first press conference following her victory. The study explores the construction of identity that proceeds during this interaction, focussing attention not simply on Thatcher's utterances but also on the contribution of journalists to the business.
