Every year Glamour Magazine honours exclusively incredible women who have made an impact in the world...until this year!
Every year Glamour magazine honours their chosen 'Women of the Year' both sides of the Atlantic, celebrating fabulous females who have made waves in the world for their profession or their beliefs.
And this year one of their honourees includes...a man.
Yes you read that correctly - one of Glamour's Women of the Year is A MAN!
Pretty bizarre choice for an awards show which honours women, but on their website, Glamour said 'But these days most women want men—no, need men—in our tribe.'
A bit of a curious statement, but nevertheless, they named U2 front man Bono as one of their choices.

If Glamour *have* to give their Woman of the Year award to a bloke, can it not be David Attenborough or Kevin from Strictly or something— Jessie Thompson (@jessiecath) November 2, 2016
I'm trying really hard not to be angry that Bono won Glamour's WOMAN Of The Year, but every time I remember it, I scream internally— Lottie L'Amour (@Lottie_Lamour) November 2, 2016
This bonkers award choice comes after a year of crazy honours in 2016 including Wonder Woman announced as a UN Ambassador and race horse American Pharaoh nominated for Sports Personality of the year.
Bono won "Woman of the Year" and Wonder Woman is a UN ambassador. If only there were real, live, human women to celebrate.— Melissa Royle (@melissaroyle) November 2, 2016
