I was always fascinated by Indira Gandhi because she was India's only female Prime Minister. I know she was ruthless in her position but both times she was Prime Minister, she took a struggling economy and strengthened it. She was highly educated both in India and also in England, studying history, political science and economics at the University of Oxford. Though she didn't believe herself to be a feminist, she did believe that women should be able to do everything. As a young woman she told her aunt that she would someday lead her people to freedom just like Joan of Arc.
