Of Course. Michelle Obama Wins Woman of Year Award From Glamour Mag
Well if Barack can win a Men’s Health Award for “Top Fittest Male” (while smoking), a Grammy for spoken word, and a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing…
Then it’s only fair that Michelle takes home a prize or two as well.
Glamour Magazine features First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of their Women of the Year issue that pays tribute to courageous and inspiring women who are changing the world.
We wouldn’t want Michelle to get upset now, would we?
First Lady Michelle Obama has demonstrated a commitment to helping the next generation of girls expand their horizons and providing them with the information and inspiration to envision themselves as the leaders of tomorrow.
Glamour celebrates her for bringing the importance of mentoring to the national forefront with events that connect young girls from around the country with women leaders from business, government, sports, science, academia, the arts and philanthropy. Mrs. Obama enlisted women in the administration to mentor girls in the community.
Mrs. Obama was photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath for one of five celebratory Women of the Year covers. For the profile inside, she is pictured alongside seven White House East Wing interns. Mrs. Obama salutes the 11 inspiring Women of the Year winners who are also featured in Glamour’s special December issue, on newsstands November 10.
“I am delighted to join in celebrating the Glamour Women of the Year,” said Mrs. Obama. “The women honored in this issue are changing the world for young girls around the world by removing obstacles, opening doors, and reaching back and extending a hand to the next generation of women leaders. They are role models for us all.”
“In under a year, Michelle Obama has transformed the role of First Lady, throwing open the doors of the White House to families and to children,” says Cindi Leive, Glamour editor-in-chief. “That alone earns her icon status — but we were especially moved by her determination to show girls the power of believing in themselves and their dreams.”
Because, of course, Michelle Obama is the first First Lady to open the White House to children.
