Caitlyn Jenner Honored as a Glamour Woman of the Year

Caitlyn Jenner is most definitely in the running for THG Celebrity of the Year.

But the transgender star was just honored with a distinction that some might say is even more noteworthy.

Caitlyn Jenner for Glamour

Jenner was just named one of the publication's Women of the Year!

Along with Reese Witherspoon, Victoria Beckham, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth Holmes, Cecile Richards, the Women of Charleston and the U.S. women’s national soccer team, Jenner is featured in Glamour‘s 25th Anniversary Women of the Year Awards issue.

It's just the latest in a series of honors for the 66-year old, who also took home the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards in July.

"I am just excited about the future for the first time in a long, long time," Caitlyn tells Glamour.

"And that is a nice feeling to have…. To be honest with you, if the worst thing in the world that happens to you is you are trans, you’ve got it made."

Pretty nice perspective, huh?

Caitlyn, of course, came out as Caitlyn on an iconic cover of Vanity Fair this spring.

She went on to star in I Am Cait for E!, taking viewers on her personal journey of self-discovery. The series will return next year for Season 2.

Writes Glamour of Jenner:

Caitlyn Jenner dared to live as she wanted to, helping America better understand gender identity and making life easier for thousands of struggling teens in the process.
