Since she stepped out into the limelight in 1974, Miss Piggy has been showing the world that it doesn't matter what you look like; women can do anything.

1. Miss Piggy was one of the first women to run for president.

5. In the 1980s, Miss Piggy became a gay icon, especially for drag queens. She's a woman that swaps extreme femininity and masculinity with ease. Frank Oz once described her as a “truck driver that wants to be a woman.”

7. She doesn't wait around for some man to save her.

9. Miss Piggy knows how to lean in.

11. Although she is glam all the way, you can't buy her love with diamonds.

12. Miss Piggy doesn't need a man (or frog) to carry her bags.

23. Miss Piggy doesn't doubt herself or her scent. That's why she has her own perfume called "Moi."
