Singers Barbra Streisand and Lady GaGa will be honoured as Glamour Women of the Year on Monday (11Nov13).

The Born This Way hitmaker, who graces the cover of Glamour magazine's December (13) issue, will be among those feted at the Carnegie Hall event in New York, while Streisand will receive the publication's Lifetime Achievement award.

Others who will be recognised for inspiring and empowering women around the world include Kerry Washington, models Christy Turlington and Liya Kebede, Microsoft founder Bill Gates' philanthropist wife Melinda, and education activist Malala Yousafzai, who hit the headlines last year (12) when she was shot in the head by Pakistani Taliban operatives keen to silence her for her outspoken views about education for girls in her homeland.
