This Monday, Glamour magazine celebrated the 25th anniversary of its Women of the Year awards at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Without a doubt, the biggest moment of the night came when Caitlyn Jenner, a transgender advocate, won a Woman of the Year award. Jenner recently became a woman and there has been a lot of controversy surrounding her ever since. Presenting her with the award brings not only validation to her cause but the transgender community as well.
This year’s awards ceremony also honored Reese Witherspoon, Hollywood Hero; Victoria Beckham, Fashion Force; Misty Copeland, Showstopper; Elizabeth Holmes, Entrepreneur; Cecile Richards, Health Advocate; as well as Team USA, The Game Changers and the Women of Charleston.
The night also included special performances by Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawerence and Ellie Goulding.
