The Warrior Queens
How does a woman take on the reins of military and political power? Having obtained power, how does she hang on to it? And how do the male contemporaries of a remarkable "warrior queen"feel about her? Starting with Boadicea, the Celtic queen who led a bloody uprising against the Romans, and ending with India Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, and Golda Meir, the "iron ladies"of recent times, Antonia Fraser tells the story of how remarkable women wield power.
