Oscar and Emmy winner Regina King has been saluted as one of Glamour magazine’s Women of the Year.

The Watchmen star will be among those celebrated during a virtual event on October 19, 2020, when special guests including Ryan Reynolds, Gabrielle Union, John Legend, and New York politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be on hand to praise the honorees.

Others recognized as Women of the Year are Atlanta, Georgia mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, NAACP Legal Defense Fund president Sherrilyn Ifill, labor leader and activist Dolores Huerta, and Big Apple hospital workers Navdeep Kaur, Jasmin Moshirpur, Veronica Henry, and Meida Sanchez.

“The 2020 class of honorees is no exception: frontline hospital workers, a civil rights lawyer, a headstrong politician, a labor rights icon, and a superstar actress bringing untold stories to the screen,” reads a statement issued by Glamour’s editor-in-chief Samantha Barry.

She reveals Glamour readers will also be acknowledged during the online special: “To live through this moment is to demonstrate Herculean resolve, resilience, and power. We all deserve an award for getting through it, tears, breakdowns, and all. And so this year belongs to each and every one of you – our women of the year.”
