Glamour's Women of the Year awards is certainly an inspirational night. An eclectic group of women including Lena Dunham, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Annie Leibovitz were honored last night at Carnegie Hall. But who would have expected it to be such a tear jerking ceremony? From 27 year old Erin Merryn's crusade to pass a law encouraging sex abuse education after her own childhood horrors, to Jenna Lyons publicly thanking her new love Courtney Crangi, the Women of the Year awards were full of emotional moments.
