I used to be a left-wing feminist who gradually realized that she had been conservative all along. It was a process of gradual disillusionment that started off with little disagreements. I began to notice that conservative women seemed more confident in themselves and less prone to the excuse-making, doom and gloom culture of the Left. Even when I was left-wing, I always admired Thatcher as a model woman leader. Over the last few months it just hit me: I must be a conservative!
