Photos: Theresa May Becomes Britain's Second Female Prime Minister as She Enters Downing Street

Theresa May has officially been installed as the new British Prime Minister as she pledged to battle 'social injustice' and create a 'country that works for everyone.' She becomes Britain's second female premier, following in the footsteps of fellow Tory Margaret Thatcher. 

Mrs May was invited to form a government by the monarch at Buckingham Palace after David Cameron officially tendered his resignation. Addressing the nation from Downing Street, the new PM praised David Cameron as a 'great modern Prime Minister'. She said:

In an appeal to those families struggling, Mrs May said: 'We will listen not to the mighty, but you.'
‘In David Cameron, I follow in the footsteps of a great modern Prime Minister. Under David’s leadership, the Government stabilised the economy, reduced the budget deficit and helped more people into work than ever before.'
