María Eva Duarte de Perón was born in 1919 on a poor family in La Pampa. She moved to Buenos Aires at the age of 15 to pursue her acting career. She met Juan Domingo Perón and became his wife.

She was the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952. She got very involved in politics and defended the socialist cause. She spoke on behalf of labour rights, she championed women’s suffrage and ran the Women’s Peronist Party.
