Few accomplish half of what Evita did during her short life.
Revered by the lower classes, Eva Perón is a name known around the world as an advocate of those in need. Though her name was María Eva Duarte de Perón, she is better known as just Eva Perón or by the nickname Evita. As an Argentine actress, politician, activist, and philanthropist, her position as the First Lady of Argentina certainly elevated her to another level when she married Argentine President Juan Domingo Perón. From June 1946 until her death in July 1952, she ran the Ministries of Labor and Health, founded and ran the charitable Eva Perón Foundation, championed women's suffrage in Argentina, and founded and ran the nation's first large-scale female political party, the Female Peronist Party.
She accomplished so much for the people in her short life, dying at the age of 33.
