The 18th Annual WIN Women's Image Awards: Recognizing Achievement of Women Behind, In Front of the Screen and in Life: Anne Archer to be Honored

What are the Woman's Image Awards? At a time when women are in the news, making a very large noise about what they want and what they do, the Woman's Image Awards has been honoring women in entertainment, politics and the humanities for decades. Beginning in  1993 they have been recognizing the achievements of females in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Started by actress and film maker Patricia Stuart the goal was to recognize and honor women who create positive and dimensional images for and of females.

Every year they honor deserving females for accomplishments in front of the camera, behind the screen or outside of the studios.. Past recipients include Abigail Disney, Cecilia DeMille Presley, Ambassador Swanee Hunt, Senator Barbara Boxer, Maria Arena Bell, Elizabeth Guider, Lauren Shuler Donner and many others. This year's Humanitarian Honoree is actress and activist  Anne Archer. This Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner is a past Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year and also founder of Artists for Human Rights who spends her time

The Unity Award this year goes to Karen Sharpe-Kramer, an actress, producer and philanthropist who seeks to inspire young filmakers through her philanthropic efforts, which includes the Stanley Kramer Library which she created with her husband, Stanley Kramer.
