BROOKLYN —  On Thursday night, it was all about Miss Piggy in Brooklyn.

Miss Piggy was honored at the Brooklyn Museum with the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art,  "Sackler Center First Award."

Kermit was there to cheer her on.

Before the night began, we got a chance to talk with trailblazer, co-founder of "Ms. Magazine", Gloria Steinem.

"I would just say in my experience however hard it is to do it, it's harder not to do," said Steinem.

Miss Piggy told us she's loves Brooklyn, and loved being honored for this tonight. According to the Museum's website, The Sackler Center First Awards is an annual event "honoring extraordinary women who are first in their fields".

Sandra Day O'Connor, Toni Morrison, Susan Stroman, and Julie Taymor, are among those who have been honored in the past.

As for Miss Piggy, Steinem said, "She is definitely her own self, and she isn't trying to be either totally masculine or totally feminine, she's human".
