For more than 80 years, Glamour has celebrated powerful women. The magazine relaunched in 1943 as a place “for the girl with a job,” and that mission to amplify ambitious, driven women has remained. Nowhere is that more evident than during our annual Women of the Year Awards.
Launched in 1990, Women of the Year (or WOTY, as we call it) has become a living history of the evolution of women’s power across film, politics, sports, activism, science, and more industries. Each year feminist heroes like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Michelle Obama, and Malala Yousafzai are honored alongside women working hard to change the world on a more grass-roots level. Their causes and stories are diverse, but they all share one thing in common: They inspire us.
We wanted to create a record of all these achievements, as well as a manual for success that women today—and tomorrow—can use as a guide. Which is why we’re proud to announce Glamour: 30 Years of Women Who Have Reshaped the World, a new book with Abrams Books that is now available.
Inside you’ll find inspiring speeches from the WOTY awards ceremonies, moving stories about our honorees, and new original content from Diane von Furstenberg, Shonda Rhimes, Samantha Bee, Betty Reid Soskin, and more.
Glamour’s 2020 Women of the Year Award honorees include Regina King, the Women of Elmhurst Hospital, and more. Read their inspiring stories here.
