Crossword Genius

Iron Lady's hat (6)


I believe the answer is:


'hat' is the definition.
(fedora is a kind of hat)

'iron lady's' is the wordplay.
'iron' becomes 'fe' (Fe is the chemical symbol for iron).
'lady' becomes 'dora' (**).

(Other definitions for fedora that I've seen before include "Type of hat" , "Or fade away with man's soft felt hat" , "Style of hat" , "Felt hat, dented lengthwise" , "top fashion" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
