It’s been one epic year for women, a notion definitely not lost on Glamour magazine.
Glamour announced its winners this past Monday for women of the year from the worlds of politics, entertainment, fashion, business and more. This year’s class includes U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, 27 key facilitators of the Women’s March on Washington and astronaut Peggy Whitson.
The other winners ahead of a Nov. 13 gala in Brooklyn, New York, are actor Nicole Kidman, singer Solange Knowles, Syrian refugee Muzoon Almellehan, late-night TV host Samantha Bee, supermodel Gigi Hadid, Dior’s first female creative director, Maria Grazi and Saa Chiuri, and “Wonder Woman” helmswoman Patty Jenkins.
Cindi Leive, Glamour’s editor-in-chief, called them “wildly diverse changemakers” who reflect this “tumultuous and electric year for women.” All will be on hand for the magazine’s annual awards night, with a summit featuring Chelsea Clinton, Laverne Cox, Cecile Richards and other past winners planned for earlier the same day.
This year’s honorees will be featured on multiple Glamour covers and in a spread for December.
