The Glamour Women of The Year award has been running for three decades. Every year they honor the most influential women on the planet and this year is no different.


For 2020, the magazine took a different approach and made a unique choice. The 2020 Women Of The Year includes all women.

The magazine reasons that after all "the tears, the fear, and the sourdough" that this year gifted everyone we need a reason to remember the strength we showed. Glamour wants to recognize women for their strength and perseverance.


The Battle

Gretchen Goldman, a research director at the Center for Science and Democracy, is a mother of two children. Like most of us, she has been forced to work from home for most of this year.

Her recent tweet, resonated with many of us and strengthened Glamour's argument that all women deserve a spot on their list this year. In the tweet, she includes two pics; one of her looking professional and put together during an interview with CNN and one of the chaos behind the camera.


For women everywhere, 2020 has felt like a never-ending battle. Whether you were working from home or bravely venturing out to do your job, staying sane and fighting to succeed was no easy feat.

This year has proved women possess a "Herculean resolve, resilience, and power." The comments under Gretchen's post further back this idea with one woman stating, "Thanks for holding up the mirror to all of us work from home co-conspirators."


The Decision To Honor Everyone

"As I scrolled through the reactions to Goldman’s tweet, it occurred to me: There should be an award for women who braved the coronavirus pandemic, marched in the streets to protest racial injustice, dealt with school closures and job losses, risked their life to help others, consistently checked in on their friends and relatives, and faced sourdough bread that just would not rise. And as the editor in chief of Glamour, I realized: We can give them one."

revealed Samantha Barry, editor in chief for Glamour magazine.

The annual Women of the Year Awards usually celebrates powerful women who are leaving their mark on the world. Past winners include Nobel Peace Prize winners, Supreme Court justices, presidents, philanthropists, and even Hollywood heavyweights.


This Year's Honorees

Beyond mentioning women everywhere, the list also singled out extraordinary women. This year's special honorees included the women of Elmhurst Hospital, NAACP Legal Defense Fund president Sherrilyn Ifill and Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

Dolores Huerta, who has spent a lifetime agitating for the powerless, is also mentioned in the 2020 list. As well as Hollywood A-lister, Regina King.

As amazing as these women are, we agree with Glamour that all women deserve a pat on the back this year. It has been no easy task to push through all the trials but as the year draws to a close, it's clear that we will not break easily.
