NYPD officer Moira Smith was killed on September 11, 2001, after rushing into the World Trade Center’s South Tower. She posthumously received a Woman of the Year award from Glamour (she was the only female cop who died that horrible day), which her husband, James, mailed back to the magazine after the same designation was given to Caitlyn Jenner.
In a letter addressed to Glamour‘s New York office and posted to Facebook, James wrote that on October 29, 2001, he was “honored to accept” the award on his late wife’s behalf, but now he’s “shocked and saddened to learn” that Jenner won it this year. “I find it insulting to Moira Smith’s memory,” he wrote, “and the memory of other heroic women who have earned this award.”
