Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jane Fonda, Maria Hinojosa, Ashley Judd, April Ryan, María Elena Salinas, Gail TiffordHosted by Maya L. HarrisNew York, New York, October 19, 2017 — The Women’s Media Center will honor Hillary Rodham Clinton with its first ever WMC Wonder Woman Award at the Women’s Media Awards on October 26 at a gala at the Capitale in New York City.
Clinton joins 2017 Honorees Jane Fonda, Maria Hinojosa, Ashley Judd, April Ryan, María Elena Salinas and Gail Tifford. The WMC also will be recognizing the film, “Hidden Figures.” Maya L. Harris will host this event for the first time.
Clinton is an advocate, attorney, author, First Lady, U.S. Senator, U.S. Secretary of State, and Democratic presidential candidate who has devoted her life to working on behalf of women, children and families.
The Women’s Media Center is presenting its first—and only—WMC Wonder Woman Award to Clinton as she is a hero to millions in the United States and around the globe for her extraordinary accomplishments and public service. Like Wonder Woman, she seems to have superhuman strength, resilience, and courage. She also blazes new paths so that everyone has equal opportunity to pursue their dreams, and she has done much of it in the face of enemy fire.
“Hillary Clinton’s actions have inspired and protected women and men on every continent,” said Gloria Steinem, co-founder of The Women’s Media Center. “She has battled negative forces and helped to maintain a fragile peace with her negotiating skill on behalf of this country and peace-seekers everywhere. She has handled all this with grace, grit, determination, integrity, humor and fortitude while remaining a steadfast feminist, advocate, activist, sister and tireless leader in the revolution. With this award, the Women’s Media Center declares Hillary Clinton our Wonder Woman.”
