Miss Piggy Receives Feminist Award, Naturally

by Augusta Statz

As if Miss Piggy wasn’t already your spirit animal, (she’s mine for sure!) she’s just given you another reason to totally love her. Miss Piggy has been named a feminist icon. There you have it. Miss Piggy is officially ah-mazing, and for more than just her fabulous wardrobe.

Being awarded the Brooklyn Museum Slacker Center First Award is no small feat. Miss Piggy will be joining the likes of Toni Morrison, Sandra Day O’Connor and Julie Taymor, who have also received the award. The Muppet was selected because of her “spirit, determination and grit,” according to AP. I’m sure her kick butt, take names later attitude and killer fashion sense don't hurt, either!

Miss Piggy said, “Moi is thrilled” after hearing the news, and moi wouldn’t expect any other response. She will be honored with the award at a ceremony on June 4th, where she will also be interviewed by feminist spokeswoman Gloria Steinem. Kermit the Frog is set to be there also (as her date, no doubt).

In honor of Miss Piggy’s incredible achievement, here’s a look at her best style moments. She is truly one fashionable Muppet and a true role model for ladies everywhere!
