LONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 13: British Prime Minister Theresa May speaks outside 10 Downing Street on July 13, 2016 in London, England. Former Home Secretary Theresa May becomes the UK’s second female Prime Minister after she was selected unopposed by Conservative MPs to be their new party leader. She is currently MP for Maidenhead.

She says her new government would fight “burning injustice” and “build a better Britain”.

This is part of her first public remarks since taking office in London on Wednesday.

“If you’re from an ordinary working class family, life is much less secure than many people in Westminster realise. The government I lead will be driven not by the interests of the privileged few, but by you,” she said.

May said that following the Brexit referendum, Britain would face a time of great national change.

“As we leave the European Union, we will forge a bold new, positive role for ourselves. Together we will build a better Britain,” she said.

      It’s called a curtsy and it’s a part of the royal etiquette when women meet the Queen.

    what’s going on? Feminist women haven taken over the world .clinton about to be the next president.May the new uk pm,Nicola sturgeon currently the Scottish first minister,,Angela the most powerful person in Europe as they say..Feminist women are about to unleash their world gender equality agenda thereby putting men at the back of the queue.So sad to see these so called feminists prospering.Anyway,no place for angry and bitter feminist women that want to be equal to men in Africa.The liberian president, Americans imposed on us Africans was a terrible mistake..It’s not happening again in Africa.Never !! Never!! It’s against our culture as Africans to be under women or ruled by women.

      What difference, impact has the long rule of men in Africa made? It’s all men in power and the continent is suffering. Or is Liberia suffering bcos of a woman president? when charles Taylor was there the country was in worst shape. Gender makes no difference in ability to govern and lead well. Men and women have the same brain cells. We have our differences but it doesn’t mean one is higher or lower than the other. Women are human beings too. To lower another human being bcos of her gender is a foolish thinking. To put another human on a superior ladder bcos of his gender is highly foolish as well.

      Women who ruled this countries are doing their jobs just the same way a man will rule the same country. It’s not feminists ruling, it’s qualified leaders ruling their country who happen to be women.
      If there’s a qualified person who happened to be a woman why not? A man is not automatically qualified or intelligent bcos of his gender.
