Hear ye, hear ye:  “Miss Piggy to receive feminist award,” squeals girl power blog  Jezebel in this article by Marie Lodi.  When she heard of the award, this lovely pig had only three words in reply:  “Moi is thrilled!”

The Brooklyn Museum’s Sackler Center is honoring this “babe” with a First Award, which celebrates “female trailblazers” like Toni Morrison and former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Elizabeth Sackler, founder of the awards, stated that Miss Piggy was the embodiment of “spirit, determination, and grit” and has taught millions of people valuable lessons about overcoming obstacles. - Jezebel

Sartle presents 116 artworks in our Girl Power topic.  Personally, I can’t get enough of the polka dot queen, who I already know Mizz Pig loves: Yayoi Kusama.
