Actress Viola Davis, songwriter Diane Warren and producer Gale Anne Hurd have been named the 2015 honorees for “Women Making History,” an annual event presented by the National Women’s History Museum.
Now in it’s fourth year, Glamour magazine will present the celebration toasting TheWrap Magazine’s most recent Emmy cover star Davis and her decorated counterparts at a brunch on September 19, to be held at Los Angeles’ Skirball Center.
“We are delighted to join with our LA Council to honor these three remarkable women,” Joan Wages, NWHM President and CEO, told TheWrap.
“The countless achievements and contributions women have made in shaping this nation have been left out of the historical narrative and it’s beyond time to correct the record. We are committed to integrating women’s history into the American mainstream.”
Warren is an Oscar nominee several times over for hits like Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me,” and Faith Hill’s “There You’ll Be.” Hurd is behind AMC’s juggernaut “The Walking Dead” and the forthcoming “Fear The Walking Dead,” as well as a producer and writer on the “Terminator” franchise.
Davis rocked the small screen last year with the Shondaland drama “How To Get Away With Murder,” which is expected to fetch her an Emmy nomination when the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences announces this year’s crop on Thursday morning.
Davis will be seen opposite Jennifer Lopez in “Lila & Eve,” in limited release on July 17. She’s currently filming David Ayer’s hotly anticipated villain flick “Suicide Squad.”
