Evita Peron [electronic resource]: Story of Transformation

Eva Maria Duarte was born in 1919, the youngest child of poor, unmarried parents. Before her death in 1951, she had transformed herself and the nation of Argentina by politically organizing and empowering women and working-class people, as well as creating a foundation that built hundreds of schools and hospitals. This program beautifully illustrates her journey, including her early days as a film and radio actress, her marriage to War Minister Juan Peron, her assistance in his election to the Presidency, her unconventional political accomplishments, and her reinvention of image of Argentina's First Lady.
