Eva Peron, better known by the nickname Evita, controversial Argentine politician, activist, actress, and philanthropist who served as First Lady of Argentina from June 1946 until her death in July 1952 as the wife of Argentine President Juan Domingo Peron (May 7, 1919 July 26, 1952) was born nee Maria Eva Duarte in poverty in the rural village of Los Toldos, in the Pampas, as the youngest of five children. In 1934, at the age of 15, she moved to the nation's capital of Buenos Aires to pursue a career as a stage, radio, and film actress. She met Colonel Juan Peron on January 22, 1944 during a charity event at the Luna Park Stadium to benefit the victims of an earthquake in San Juan, Argentina. The two were married the following year. Juan Peron was elected President of Argentina in June 1946; during the next six years, Maria Eva Duarte de Peron became powerful within the pro-Peronist trade unions, primarily for speaking on behalf of labor rights. She also ran the Ministries of Labor and Health, founded and ran the charitable Eva Peron Foundation, championed women's suffrage in Argentina, and founded and ran the nation's first large-scale female political party, the Female Peronist Party. In 1951, Eva Peron announced her candidacy for the Peronist nomination for the office of Vice President of Argentina, receiving great support from the Peronist political base, low-income and working-class Argentines who were referred to as descamisados or "shirtless ones". Opposition from the nation's military and bourgeoisie, coupled with her declining health, ultimately forced her to withdraw her candidacy. In 1952, shortly before her death from cancer at 33, Eva Peron was given the title of "Spiritual Leader of the Nation" by the Argentine Congress. She died in Buenos Aires, Argentina at 8:25 p.m. on a Saturday of cervical cancer. She was given a state funeral, a prerogative generally reserved for heads of state. Eva Peron has become a part of international popular culture, most famously as the subject of the musical Evita (1976). Cristina Alvarez Rodriguez has said that Evita has never left the collective consciousness of Argentines. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the second woman elected president of Argentina (after Isabel Peron), claims that women of her generation owe a debt to Eva for "her example of passion and combativeness".
