Glamour’s annual Women of the Year list always takes in a lot of territory, from noteworthy fashionistas and sports heroes to social justice activists and business leaders.

But more than a few eyebrows arched when U2’s Bono, a man equipped with a Y chromosome and male genitalia, was added to the docket of names.

“We’ve talked for years about whether to honor a man at Women of the Year and we’ve always kind of put the kabash on it. You know, men get a lot of awards and aren’t exactly hurting in the celebration and honors department,” said Cindi Leive, Glamour’s editor-in-chief.

“But it started to seem that that might be an outdated way of looking at things, and there are so many men who really are doing wonderful things for women these days. Some men get it and Bono is one of those guys,” Leive said in a recent interview.

So how did the man of the hour take the news? Bono’s wife, Ali Hewson, had some thoughts, Leive said.

“Apparently he turned to his wife and broke the news and she told him, eh, I think you still have some work to do,” she laughed.
