Well, was she a saint or devil? (Evita Perón)



Well...I know it's a joke!  ;D For me she was a great woman. She did lots of things for poor people, and she even pay no attention to her health to keep doing things for them. Of course, some rich people hate her, for they wanted to keep mistreating the people who worked for them, paying them badly and all. So they lied about her, saying she was a prostitute and a demagogue and such things. When she was agonizing, one of these people wrote in the wall of Evta's house: " Hurrah the Cancer!!!"  It was awful.

Perhaps you wants to know that Evita fighted to win the right to vote for the women.  :)

I hope she will manage to stay that way over the years. :) It would be too sad if she would loose this once she is a queen and under much more pressure and public scrutiny than now.


Yes; I supposes she may end like Lady Diana.  :-/

I have read her autobiography, 'in my own words: Evita', and saw two movies, 'Evita' the musical, and 'Evita' with Esther Goris.

What a good thing that you read this book. In Spanish it's titled: "La Razón de Mi vida" ("The Reasons of My LIfe"). The Von Weber musical is very inaccurate, and so was the "Madonna" movie. The better one is the movie with Esther Goris and Victor Laplace in it. Pretty accurate, even if she was more older than the real Evita, who died when she was 33.

I come from La Coruña (Spain), but I'm half Spanish (mom's side) and half Anglo-American-Italian on my dad's side. Hope to become Russian by marriage :D

Living in Erie, PA in northwest PA.  Lived in State College, PA and Buffalo, NY for school.  Then lived in Pittsburgh and Albany, NY.  If anyone's in the area let me know.  Would love to grab coffee with a fellow Romonophile.
