MissPiggy mit Frauenrechtspreis geehrt
And The Feminist Award Goes To…Miss Piggy! Yes, You Heard.
Everyone's favourite Muppet is finally getting the recognition she deserves as an empowered feminist icon.
She’s certainly no push-over and her trademark karate chop is feisty enough to instil fear and command obedience in us all, so it may come as no surprise that everyone’s favourite mangalitsa pig is set to be awarded for her 40 years service to feminism. Hi-YAH!
That’s right, after 40 years of putting Kermit the Frog in his place, Miss Piggy will be bestowed with a Sackler Center First Award on 4 June, honouring women who who have broken a gender barrier to become leaders in their fields, at the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
Past recipients have included acclaimed writer Toni Morrison, stage and film director Julie Taymor and Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Sandra Day O’Connor.
A museum spokesperson announced: ‘The 2015 Sackler Center First Awards honours performer, actor, writer, and icon Miss Piggy, for more than 40 years of blazing feminist trails with determination and humour, and for her ground-breaking role inspiring generations the world over.’
Miss Piggy was quick to respond to the accolade, exclaiming: ‘Moi is thrilled.’
But wait, it gets better, because on the day itself she’ll even hold an evening of talks with feminist activist and author Gloria Steinem. Now that’s a panel partnership we’d LOVE to see.
