Britain on Thursday moved a step closer to having its second female prime minister! The contest to lead the country’s ruling Conservative party narrowed to two women. Theresa May and Andrea Leadsom emerged as the favorites in a ballot of lawmakers that was triggered by David Cameron’s resignation over last month’s Brexit vote. The two candidates now face a nationwide vote of about 150,000 Conservative party members on September 9. Britain’s only female prime minister was Margaret Thatcher, who stood down in 1990 after an 11-year stint in power.
