By Kenrya Rankin Nov 02, 2016

For 27 years, Glamour has recognized “Women of the Year,” women who, as the magazine’s website says, show us “that you can do great things in life when you find a way to park your doubts at the curb.”

This year’s group of women includes several women of color, including Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, actress and activist Zendaya, former ISIS captive Nadia Murad, and the three women who founded the Black Lives Matter movement, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi. Other honorees include the Stanford sexual assault survivor know as “Emily Doe,” Ashley Graham, Christine Lagarde, Miuccia Prada, Gwen Stefani and the first-ever man: Bono.
