Evita Perón: Spiritual Leader of Argentina - At first, I wanted to write about the role of women in post-colonial Argentina. This topic, as could be expected, is far too broad to even begin addressing in fifteen or so pages.

This is, in a sense, a way of comparing the role of women then and now in two different societies. Knowing the circumstances of Eva Perón’s birth and youth, it seems inconceivable that she would become the unstoppable political firebrand whose memory evokes wails even today....   [tags: Eva Perón, Juan Perón]
