It seems that there is more 'bust' than 'europe' in one of the photo's call it 'sexist' today, but, back then, it was considered 'normal', how times change.
Thatcher was to turn against europe, even though she was previously pro-europe, she weighed in against John MAJOR for signing the Maastricht Treaty, for which she claimed he had,"put his head in the fire".
She herself had signed the 'Single European Act', for which she had believed beforehand, that the European Commission would honour it's 'Limited Majority Voting' provisions.That's the reason she condemned MAJOR, who, himself, also against Thatchers opinion, that a referendum was needed on europe over the direction it was taking, towards, being a different animal to what it had hitherto been.
Her attitude to the euro issue, between parliament vs a referendum was expressed thus," 'To say that our power comes only from the ballot box and then we ignore such a big constitutional change seems to me to be utterly wrong,' she said.
There is only one way to elevate a single issue and give it the importance which this one deserves and that is to have a specific referendum."
Understandably, she thoroughly disliked John MAJOR,maybe it was because he was a europhile, or the fact that he liked a 'bit of CURRIE' now & again.
