Netizen24.com – Entertainment Prime News: Bono made Glamour’s Women of the Year list
But now they say “These days most women want men — no, need men — in our tribe.”
“When the president declared himself a feminist, when super-cool actors line up to endorse the United Nations’ #HeForShe campaign, when a major male rock star who could do anything at all with his life decides to focus on the rights of women and girls worldwide — well, all that’s worth celebrating,” the note stated. “We’re proud to name that rock star, Bono, our first Man of the Year.”
That’s not sitting well with some.
“Glamour naming Bono “Woman of the Year” is just another example of a man getting a job despite there being women more qualified to do it,” one person tweeted.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour wrote a piece for Glamour hailing the inclusion of her friend Bono.
Pointing to his Poverty Is Sexist campaign aimed at helping the world’s poorest women, Amanpour said he’s the perfect choice.
“I’m sure I don’t deserve it,” she quoted Bono as saying. “But I’m grateful for this award as a chance to say the battle for gender equality can’t be won unless men lead it along with women. We’re largely responsible for the problem, so we have to be involved in the solutions.”
