When we started to think about who to honor as our Women of the Year, we realized that these women are not just promoting one issue or one conversation, they are using their voices and platforms to have a lasting impact for generations to come,” Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry said about the honorees. “This group of exceptional women are having the tough conversations that open doors, and forge new paths on issues ranging from equal pay to climate change. They’re inspiring cross generational people globally and we are proud to honor them as Women of the Year.”

Yara Shahidi Opens Up About What Sparked Her Motivation & Passion For Activism

Yara Shahidi gets her own cover as part of Glamour‘s Women of the Year feature.

Here’s what the 19-year-old Grown-ish actress shared:

On what sparked her own activism: “That panel [NAACP panel in 2015] was really pivotal for me because I realized I could not only be a leader in conversation, but I could be one of the voices representing things that are near and dear to my heart.”

On her overall goal: “I want to use the resources I have to actively engage other activists and help support them.”

On her inspirations: “I don’t think I’d be doing the work I’m doing if I wasn’t constantly inspired by the other young people doing this work, by the other young people doing work I didn’t even realize had to be done. I feel like we constantly educate one another. Because we inherited a world in crisis, we enter this world inspired to make change.”

Charlize Theron & More Powerful Women Are Honored with 'Glamour' Covers

Charlize Theron is among the Women of the Year honorees who are being celebrated with Glamour covers!

The Oscar-winning actress joins fellow actress Yara Shahidi, director Ava DuVernay, soccer star Megan Rapinoe, “The Handmaid’s Tale” author Margaret Atwood, designer Tory Burch, environmental activist Greta Thunberg, and the Women of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

Charlize‘s full story is live now and the rest of the features will go live throughout the week. Here’s what the Bombshell actress had to share with the mag:

On how she was scared to do Bombshell: “I think I was scared of it… A lot of projects I’ve been involved in are not necessarily projects where everybody has gone, ‘Yeah, this is going to be great, you should do this!’” she says, smiling. “It tends to be projects where people are like, ‘I don’t know about this Monster movie. Really?’ ”

On working with young people through her charity: “I love working with young people because when I look at all of the issues we have faced in our history, it’s always young people who have the ‘f–k you’ to not give up. That’s where change comes from—it doesn’t come from old politicians. It’s always young people.”

On appreciating what she has: “I always had an awareness that it could end, it could literally end tomorrow. Just have the moment because the moment might never come again. I tell my kids that… I don’t think you’re ever too young to know the value of what you have right now.”
