Here Hillary addresses Latin voters (note clothing similarities in the two pictures, color, jewelry, retro-style). Now, why was Evita much loved and Hillary is hated (by some anyway)? It is said that in spelling books in Argentina, children’s early readers started with “I love Evita”. Can you imagine the same for Hillary? Would one say Hillary is a “feminist”? Would the same be said about Evita? I happened to stumble upon these two photos by chance, and could not help but notice the (superficial anyway) similarities, yet also the huge differences between these women. Anyway, just some “food for thought”.

Hillary quotes (from thinkexist site)

“The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they’re not.”“Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

“give those heathen a little taste of hell.”

“For too long, our close ties with the Arab world have been compromised by negative stereotyping on both sides. It is my hope that this trip will help strengthen the bonds of friendship among our nations.”


Evita Peron

I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.”

“I am only a simple woman who lives to serve Peron and my people.”

“Answer violence with violence. If one of us falls today, five of them must fall tomorrow.”

Evita, whose concept of feminism saw women as protagonists while continuing to be feminine, thought that the feminist movement should, for love, be united to the cause and doctrine of a man worthy of trust. She understood that among the many differences between a man and a woman, one difference involved the concept of “action”: “A man of action is one who triumphs over the rest. A woman of action is one who triumphs for the rest.”Evita spoke to the multitude but eluded accepting the office of vice president. The people insisted and a dialogue began whose fervor and intensity is difficult to put into words. Evita asked for time to think things over before reaching a decision.“I do not renounce my work, I only renounce the honors … .”
