Margaret Thatcher was a polarizing figure, and people STILL either love her or hate her even after she's passed. She did help pave the way for women in politics, though!

Margaret Thatcher, one of Britain's most controversial Prime Ministers, has sadly passed after suffering a stroke.
She was 87.
Her spokesperson said in a statement:
"It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning."
Regardless of what people may have thought of her post-War policies, she was a force to be reckoned with, and will be missed.
May she find peace.
