Died: July 26th, 1952
High of Her Life: Serving as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 til her death, she was one of the most beloved political figure heads in the country. She was the equivalent of Princess Diana to England. Eva Peron was well loved by women and the poor, because she was an activist for both. She was even put forward as a candidate for vice-president. Also, she had a pretty awesome musical written about her life that spawned some songs now known as Broadway classics. How many people can say that?
Low of Her Life: She died of terminal cancer before she was able to live out her dream of getting further involved in politics. Also, Madonna portrayed her in the movie version of said musical. And Madonna is pretty much the furthest from the kind of person Evita was. Also, her husband remarried some other chick while she was dying, who later became the first female president of any country ever. That bitch.
Who Sees Her As a Hero: Feminists, Tim Rice, Argentinian homeless people
