2014 Women Who Care Award Honorees:

Judith Light won her second Tony Award in two years this past year for her work in The Assembled Parties. She is the first consecutive acting winner in almost 20 years and is also the first ever consecutive winner in that category, having previously won for Other Desert Cities. Judith also won Drama Desk Awards for both The Assembled Parties and Other Desert Cities. Judith was also nominated for a Tony Award in 2011 for her performance in Lombardi.

This year, Judith joined the second season of the TNT hit show, “Dallas.” She has just completed the ABC pilot for “The Winklers,” starring opposite Henry Winkler. Judith’s television career began with her two-time Best Actress Emmy® Award-winning turn in “One Life to Live.” She then went on to star on the hit comedy series “Who's the Boss?” Up until 2010, she was seen on the ABC-TV series “Ugly Betty,” for which she received an Emmy nomination.

She has produced several fashion movies for NBC, Hallmark and Hanai Mori.

China's more recent ventures include her real estate redevelopment, the opening and running of “The Country Bazaar” general store, and an art gallery for photography in Watermill. In the past three years, “W” magazine did a 30-page story on her which caused a snowballing effect as since then there have been over 100 stories on her all over the world. She was featured in the wonderful Cole Haan's “Born in 1928” campaign to mark its 85th anniversary in 2013, which was a sensation around the world. China is currently working on her autobiography.
