Bono Becomes First Man To Be Named On Glamour’s ‘Women of the Year’

Published

Popular Women’s magazine Glamour has named rockstar Bono in its list of Women of the Year.

The lead singer of Irish rock band U2 was included in the annual list of the Magazine honouring female achievements, making him the first man to ever receive the honour.

The magazine said the 56-year-old was honoured because of the ”wonderful things” he has been doing for women in recent times.

Glamour’s editor-in-chief Cindi Leive said:

We’ve talked for years about whether to honour a man at Women of the Year and we’ve always kind of put the kabash on it.

“You know, men get a lot of awards and aren’t exactly hurting in the celebration and honours department.

“But it started to seem that that might be an outdated way of looking at things, and there are so many men who really are doing wonderful things for women these days.

“Some men get it and Bono is one of those guys.”

Bono is known globally as a philanthropist, and last year, he established the ‘Poverty is Sexist’ campaign to highlight that poverty affects women more than men.

Last year he also came out publicly in favour of same-sex marriage in the Republic of Ireland, calling marriage “an idea that transcends religion.”

Bono has however said he doesn’t think he deserves the award.

He said, “I’m sure I don’t deserve it. But I’m grateful for this award as a chance to say the battle for gender equality can’t be won unless men lead it along with women.”

Alongside Bono, the actual women recognised this year include singer Gwen Stefani, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, former Disney star Zendaya, athlete Brock Turner, Fashion designer Miuccia Prada, IMF chief Christine Lagarde, ISIS kidnap survivor Nadia Murad, model Ashley Graham, and Black Lives Matter activists Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi.

The honourees will be recognised at a ceremony on November 14.
