John O’Sullivan, “Leading Lady: Margaret Thatcher and the Political Destiny of Women”
Start Date: 5/1/2012Start Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
John O'Sullivan, former Special Adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, will discuss the political destiny of women, including how Lady Thatcher paved the way for women in contemporary politics.

While O’Sullivan worked as Special Adviser for the Prime Minister Thatcher, he specialized in the areas of health and social security, defense procurement, and the Arts. Following this role, he served informally as a regular speech-writer for the Prime Minister. He was later part of the small team that assisted Lady Thatcher in the writing of her two volumes of memoirs. And for several years in the 1990s he served both as an informal advisor to Lady Thatcher and as a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Thatcher Foundations.

His book, The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister, discusses the roles played by Pope John Paul II, President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher in the collapse of communism and the revival of Western market democracies. He was the principal author of the 1987 Conservative election manifesto.

O'Sullivan is currently the Executive Editor of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty in Prague and a Vice-President of the RFERL Corporation that broadcasts via radio and the internet to twenty nations across Eurasia in twenty-eight languages. 

O’Sullivan will speak as part of the NHIOP Bookmark Series, a new speaker series featuring prominent authors, whose works address political, social, and community issues. Copies of his book, The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister, will be available for sale and O’Sullivan will also be signing books after the event.
