Moira Smith was a police officer who lost her life in the 9/11 attacks after rushing into the south tower. She was posthumously awarded the Woman Of The Year Award by Glamour Magazine a month after her death. This year the award was given to transgendered woman Caitlyn Jenner aka Bruce Jenner. Officer Smith’s husband has kept the award on a shelf honoring his late wife, but after hearing that the award was also given to Caitlyn, he returned with a letter expressing his disgust.
“I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year,’ ” Smith wrote in his scathing missive of the former Olympic track star and Kardashian reality-show patriarch.
“Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?” Smith wrote. “At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases . . . the list of possibilities goes on . . . is this the best you could do?”
