The widower of a policewoman killed on 9/11 has returned his wife’s Glamour “Woman of the Year” award after the same award was given to reality star and former athlete Caitlyn Jenner. 

James Smith authored an open letter to the women’s magazine explaining his decision. “On October 29th, 2001 I was honored to accept theGlamour magazine ‘Woman of the Year’ Award posthumously given to my wife, Police OfficerMoira Smith. Moira was killed on September 11th, 2001 while rescuing thousands from the World Trade Center.”

“I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year,'” he continued. “I find it insulting to Moira Smith’s memory, and the memory of other heroic women who have earned this award.”
