We’ve already explained why we don’t think Caitlyn Jenner should’ve been chosen as Glamour’s Woman of the Year, but instead of just bringing up the problem, we decided to find a solution: Like 5 women who actually should have received the honor. Check the list and add your own suggestions in the comments section. Note: Since Misty Copeland did make Glamour’s long list of women of the year for 2015, we didn’t include her here; otherwise, duh!
Jada Pinkett-Smith has had an illustrious career as an actress, but it’s her call to end human trafficking that’s impressed us most in recent years. In 2012 the wife and mother testified on Capitol Hill, demanding Congress do more to stop women and girls from being sold into sexual slavery. Plus, she’s bringing up daughter Willow Smith to be an activist just like her and that is very cool.
