Bono has been named the first Glamour Man of the Year.
The Irish musician will be awarded for his work on the rights and needs of women who are living in poverty around the world. The 56-year-old launched his Poverty is Sexist movement through his One Campaign.
Glamour's editor, Cindi Leive told Press Association: "We've talked for years about whether to honour a man at the 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 honours department.”
“But it started to seem that that might be an outdated way of looking at things, and there are so many men who really are doing wonderful things for women these days.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.”
Bono will be presented his award as the first Man of the Year in LA on November 14.
