NEW YORK (AP) â€” Entertainer Bette Midler, Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, and freed Soviet refusenik Ida Nudelare among Ms. magazine‘s 13 winners of 1987 Women of the Year’ awards.
Midler, an actress, comedian, singer and mother, succeeded “without sacrificing one whit of her smarts, originality, bawdiness or power to the conventions of Hollywood and mass media,” Ms. announced.
Brundtland and Nudel will share the magazine’s “Simone de Beauvoir International Woman of the Year Award,” named for the French feminist who died in 1986.
Other winners include USA Today publisher Cathleen Black, pediatric surgeon Patricia Dqnohoe of Boston, author Toni
Morrison and tennis star Martina Navratiiova.
