Variety announced Monday the six women who have been selected to be Variety‘s Lifetime Impact Honorees for their humanitarian work: Clinton; actresses Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively, and Audra McDonald; CBS host Gayle King; and media executive Shari Redstone.

The recipients will be recognized on the next cover of Variety and at the magazine's Power of Women: New York luncheon on April 21.

When speaking about the recipients, Variety‘s chief revenue officer, Michelle Sobrino Stearns, said, "At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media, and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational."

Next month's event is connected to the annual New York Women's Impact Report, which, according to Variety, "profiles women who made a significant impact in entertainment and media in the past year."

Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, will be celebrated for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which says its goal is to "reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits."

Clinton co-founded the group.
