María Eva Duarte de Perón (1919-1952)
Better known all over the world as “Evita”, she is one of the greatest political myths of the Argentina of the 20th century. People either adored or despised her and she was given exceptional virtues, real or fictitious, which contributed to the legend.
A combative and passionate revolutionary, the First Lady was indeed the first woman to enter the political scene in Argentina, which until then had been exclusive to men. Like Cinderella, she moved from rags to power and glory, and embodied (like no one else before her) the ideal of social justice.
