Gloria Steinem and Miss Piggy

Gloria Steinem (b.1934) is an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist who became nationally recognized as a leader and spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 70s. She was a columnist for New York magazine and a founder of Ms. magazine, which used an image of Wonder Woman on its first issue in 1971. In 2005, Steinem, Jane Fonda, and Robin Morgan co-founded the Women's Media Center, an organization that works "to make women visible and powerful in the media."

Steinem participated in the ceremony honoring Miss Piggy for her feminist contribution to popular culture at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
