Evita Perón

Evita Perón | Evita Perón- Change Maker | Scoop.it

María Eva "Evita" Duarte Perón was the wife of populist Argentine president Juan Perón during the 1940's and 1950's. Evita was very influential among the people of Argentina. She was a very important part of her husbands’ power and was loved by the poor and the working class. She dedicated her life to Argentina and strived to make it a better place for the poor and common people. The people responded by creating a cult of personality to her that exists to this day. Evita came from a lower class family and did everything she could to see people of her background better off when she came into a position of power. She campaigned for her husband and contributed to his election because of her influence. She is regarded by many to be a politician. Her ambition, passion, dedication, and compassion led her towards becoming a change maker and she is still loved by most Argentinean people today because of these characteristics. Evita became an advocate of the poor and for women’s education. She also helped the poor workers of Argentina gain a voice and respect in the country that previously exploited them. Although she had a short political career, she became the most powerful woman in Argentina while her husband was president.
