Congratulations are in order! The remarkable and inspiring Caitlyn Jenner will be honored at the ‘Glamour’ 25th Anniversary Women of the Year Awards — find out more about this huge honor!
Caitlyn Jenner, 66, will be accepting an award at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, which will take place on November 9 in New York City. 2015 was a huge year for the former olympian and “Glamour is thrilled to celebrate” her astounding accomplishments.
Caitlyn explained why her journey is so important in Glamour‘s December issue. “I started thinking, Maybe this is why God put me on earth. This issue has been swept under the rug for so long. I need to tell this story on the highest level you can possibly do it. Not just for me but for this entire community,” she said.
The big award ceremony in November is meant to “honor trailblazers and newsmakers from across the worlds of entertainment, fashion, politics, business, and more. Amy Schumer will open the awards ceremony, which will recognize Victoria Beckham, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth Holmes, CaitlynJenner, Cecile Richards, Reese Witherspoon, the Women of Charleston, and the U.S. women’s national soccer team,” according to Glamour.
“Since 1990, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards have saluted the planet’s most remarkable female leaders, and this year’s winners are no exception,” Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive explained. “They have been inspired and led by the generations of Women of the Year before them, and Glamour is thrilled to celebrate their passion.”
