As a fellow South American Eva Peron holds a special place in the hearts and esteem of all of us here at WoK HQ. An inspiring feminist and role model Eva Peron or Evita as she was known as a woman who embodied grace both physically and mentally.
Eva was an actress as well as First Lady to Argentinian President Juan Peron and used her role as the First Lady to fight for labour rights and specifically women’s rights. As someone born in poverty who had worked her way to prosperity and recognition her humility was something that carried her a far way on her journey through life.
When asked why she helped other women she said:
“I demanded more rights for women because I know what women had to put up with.”
