Yes, that Miss Piggy.
At a ceremony in the Brooklyn Museum last night, author and activist Gloria Steinem presented the feisty muppet with the coveted Sackler Center First Award, honoring extraordinary women who are first in their fields.
“Moi is now and has always been an ardent feminist and champion of women’s rights,” Miss Piggy wrote in a Time editorial, “Why I Am a Feminist Pig.” “I believe that any woman who refuses to accept society’s preconceived notions of who or what they can be is a feminist. I believe any woman who is willing to struggle, strive–and if necessary learn karate–to make their mark in the world is a feminist. And, yes, I believe that any woman, who cares about her appearance, her star billing and most especially her percentage of the gross, is a feminist. Moi is all of these things.”
