Evita Lobotomized By Her Husband for Control at Discovery
Not the first woman to undergo this procedure to "correct" her behavior, not the last. (See, Rosemary Kennedy). Eva Perón, the fiery first lady of Argentina in the 1940s and early 1950s, was lobotomized at the order of her husband, Juan Perón, not only to control the pain of her cancer, but also to control her increasingly erratic behavior, according to a new paper that researched her operation by interviewing those who were there.

This is a complex issue, and therefore Minions should explain it. I fucking love BuzzFeed. They think of everything.

The launch of 'Woman on the Map' lets you hit the streets and discover the amazing women history forgot.

Photos: Remembering the Victims of the Srebrenica Massacre at Newsweek
The largest massacre in Europe since the Holocaust, 20 years later.

A crowd of furious Bosnian Muslims jumped over fences and attacked Serbia’s prime minister with stones and water bottles on Saturday, marring the 20th anniversary commemorations of the massacre in Srebrenica, in eastern Bosnia.

A day before the doomed departure, the plaque was presented to Lord William James Pirrie, chairman of shipbuilder Harland and Wolff, which built the Titanic.

A first for the Chesapeake area.
