The leader of the group U2, Bono became the first man in the list of "Woman of the year" by Glamour magazine, reports Associated Press.
In Glamour than one year discussed the issue of whether to include men in the list of "woman of the year", and eventually came to the conclusion that now there are a lot of men doing useful and necessary things for women. "Many men do this and Bono — one of them," said magazine editor in chief Cindy Leiva (Cindi Leive).
It is no coincidence the choice fell on Bono — the leader of the group U2 has launched a movement "Poverty is sexist". According to statistics, nearly 62 million girls around the world was denied on the basis of gender in the right to education, and half a billion women cannot read.
He said on Tuesday, November 1, that the battle for gender equality will not be won as long as you don't join men. "We're very much responsible for this problem, so must be part of the solution," explained Bono.
Other recipients of 2016, Glamour magazine designer Miuccia Prada and the head of the IMF Christine Lagarde.
Ceremony honoring all winners of the list of "woman of the year" will be held November 14 in Los Angeles.
