Female Bodyguards…the early days of Japanese female close protection

In 1979 when Margaret Thatcher  was coming into power as Britain’s first female Prime Minister, rejected a female bodyguard team while attending the Tokyo economic summit.  Thatcher was assigned a detail of 20 “karate ladies”.  She rejected the offer for the level and type of protection based upon not wanting to be singled out and treated differently than her male counterparts.

The Japanese secured the event with 26,000 police officers.  Since Thatcher had not used female close protection at home, she was content with having predominately male executive protection on her side.  We can’t know for sure if the female bodyguards were given another task during this event or if they were just put the way side.  But, we think that the Japanese government in some ways was forward thinking.  They obviously saw the value in having a female close protection unit for visiting female dignitaries.

Of course there are many reasons female’s should be looked at as a valuable resource when planning protective assignments.  Looking at what type of client you have is always a precursor to assigning the best man OR woman for the job.
