Planned Parenthood recently announced the winners of the 2015 Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Maggie Awards, which recognizes media reporters for their exceptional efforts in supporting reproductive rights and health care issues. Inaugurated in 1978, the Maggie Awards accepts entries from a wide variety of media outlets, such as newspapers, magazines, television, and radio. Though awards are presented in several categories, the ceremony does not grant awards in every category each year.
The 2015 PPFA Maggie Awards honored an array of topics, such as women’s health in Texas, abortion stigma, and Uganda’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender movement. During its summer awards ceremony, Planned Parenthood presented awards in 15 categories, including Online Documentary, Women’s Magazine, Youth Media, and Social Media Campaign.
