It is an honor to recognize this year’s astounding advocates for women: Mary-Louise Parker, Andrea Tyler Evans and Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, Arizona Foundation for Women CEO Mesha Davis said in a written statement.
The event will feature honorees for the Sandra Day O’Connor Lifetime Achievement Award, Voice of Women Award and the Marilyn R. Seymann Award.

Parker has been a Broadway and television actress for more than 35 years and has won numerous awards including two Tony awards, an Emmy and two Golden Globes.
