The Sackler Center For Feminist Art Is Presenting Miss Piggy With An Award

On June 4, the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art will award Miss Piggy with the feminist award. The Sackler Center initially established this award ceremony in 2012, and they have been holding the award ceremony annually ever since. The ceremony focuses on honoring women who have served as trailblazers and change makers in their respective industries.

The awards ceremony will take place at the Brooklyn Museum, and the reception will feature a conversation between Miss Piggy and feminist icon, Gloria Steinem. Miss Piggy will join a strong list of women, with honorees such as Toni Morrison and former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Elizabeth Sackler, the founder and presenter of the awards said that Miss Piggy was the embodiment of "spirit, determination, and grit." Sackler then went on to say that she chose Miss Piggy for the award because she feels that Miss Piggy has taught millions of people valuable lessons.
