Not everyone was a fan of Caitlyn Jenner being named Glamour’s Woman of the Year, or her acceptance speech.
According to US Weekly, actress Rose McGowan wrote a lengthy Facebook post, which has since been deleted, about Jenner’s acceptance speech. McGowan had a problem with Jenner saying that the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear” during her Nov. 9 speech.
"Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all,” she wrote. “You want to be a woman and stand with us- well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you. You're a woman now? Well f—king learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege.”
McGowan is not the only person who has criticized Glamour’s decision to give Jenner this award. The husband of Moira Smith, a woman who received the award after she died helping evacuate people from Tower Two on 9/11, has returned the award to the magazine.
Glamour’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive stood by their decision to give Jenner the award and clarified that Jenner is one of the many women who were honored as Women of the Year.
