A political cartoon of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher portrays her as a vicious “man-eater”. Labeling women as “man-eaters” carries the implication that they are devoid of feminine characteristics, displaying agression and ruthlessness instead; traits that are often considered to be typically masculine. Here, Thatcher is illustrated to look inhuman to convey that she is an aggressive politician who will stop at nothing to achieve her ultimate goal, which is to obtain power.
