Back page: Ms. Piggy received feminist honor

NEW YORK (AP) — A prestigious award from the Brooklyn Museum honors women who have made outstanding contributions in their fields. This year’s surprise honoree is … Miss Piggy. The Muppets character joins a distinguished list of recipients of the Sackler Center First Awards. They include theater director Julie Taymor and former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. The Daily Beast recently called Miss Piggy “The Gloria Steinem of the Muppet World.” She will be interviewed at the June 4 ceremony by the feminist herself. The museum’s Elizabeth Sackler Center for Feminist Art was founded by its namesake. Sackler says Miss Piggy embodies “spirit, determination and grit” and has taught millions important lessons about overcoming obstacles. Miss Piggy — known for her French affectation — declared: “Moi is thrilled.” Kermit the Frog will also attend.
