Miss Piggy Receives Feminist Award

The Muppets’ Miss Piggy was recently awarded the Sackler Center First Award by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art for her contributions toward modern feminism and for serving as a consistent inspiration to younger generations. Past recipients include former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O’Connor, writer Toni Morrison and director Julie Taymor. In her classic, confident style, Miss Piggy took to Time Magazine to announce her accomplishment: “This week moi is being honored—and deservedly so,” she writes, “…Isn’t it wonderful, isn’t it about time?”
