Join Glamour in honoring Malala Yousafzai—this year's Women of the Year Fund winner—with a gift to help The Malala Fund begin grantmaking.
This Year’s Women of the Year Fund Honoree
This year Glamour is proud to help support the efforts of The Malala Fund, started by 2013 Glamour Women of the Year honoree Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was shot and nearly killed by the Taliban when she tried to go to school. The Malala Fund provides funds and support for programs that work towards Malala's mission to make sure all girls have access to the education they deserve. Worldwide, 66 million girls are not in school, and when girls are denied an education, society loses one of its greatest and most powerful resources. “One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world,” Malala has said, and she’s right. Your donation can help deliver a high-quality education to disadvantaged communities around the world while amplifying the voices of those fighting for their right to an education.

About the Women of the Year Fund Since 1990 Glamour’s salute to inspiring, high-achieving women through our Women of the Year Awards has had an astonishing impact on politics and society—sometimes even saving lives. Glamour’s Women of the Year Fund initiative harnesses the spotlight of our star-studded annual event to raise the visibility of a crucial issue impacting women’s lives. Readers like you have given generously to support the efforts of the women profiled in the magazine and at the event, making a genuine difference in the lives of women and girls around the world. Through your combined efforts and donations, you’ve helped fund programs that support filmmaker and activist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Project SAAVE (Stand Against Acid Violence) to build and equip a burn unit at Mayo Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan, in partnership with the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent in North America (APPNA). You’ve also supported programs that maintain women’s full rights in post-revolution Egypt through Vital Voices Global Partnership, delivered lifesaving resources for women and children in war-torn Somalia through the Dr. Hawa Abdi Foundation, prevented child marriage in Yemen through the Girls World Communication Center, and provided counseling for former child soldiers in Uganda via Empowering Hands. Through Women of the Year, Glamour readers have also funded Mukhtar Mai’s shelter for women in Pakistan as well as Somaly Mam’s work on behalf of former sex slaves in Cambodia.
A Special Project of the Women of the Year Fund In addition to raising awareness and funds for our WOTY Fund honoree each November, Glamour’s Women of the Year Fund initiative also works to support women throughout the year. The Glamour Kiss Kiss bracelet by Chan Luu supports women displaced by the Haiti earthquake. By ordering one, you help survivors get out of disaster mode and start a new life. Click here to learn how.
