II, Larson 3). Along with all these efforts, Evita and her foundation concentrated specifically on helping the women, the children, and the elderly of the lower class. Evita fought for the passage of the women's suffrage law, which was finally approved in 1947 after many years of being "put on the back burner" (To Be II). She formed the Peronista Feminist Party in 1949 (Mc Henry 301). She also set up special homes for young women who left home for the city with little or no money, as she had done when she was young (Guillermoprieto 105). One of these homes was called the General San Martin Home for Women Employees. Evita frequently ate her evening meal here with the young ladies who were staying (To Be II). Evita commented, "The country which forgets its children renounces its future" (To Be II). With this in mind, the EPF founded orphanages called The Children's City and The Student's City. These cities were created for orphans, children whose families had no place to stay, and children who could not be cared for at home (To Be II). The Foundation also constructed 1,000 schools (To Be II) plus agricultural schools, nursery schools, daycare centers, and workshops (To Be II). In order to cater to the elderly, the EPF created homes for senior citizens. As Larson commented, "Evita believed that seniors should live in a place that encouraged them to go on living, not just wait for death" (3). The Foundation kept this thought in mind when the homes were built. The villages were designed so the seniors could continue their occupations and hobbies if they chose to do so (Larson 3).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
