Meet Illinois’ ‘Woman of the Year’
(REDEYECHICAGO.COM) CHICAGO – Never mind the red carpet.
Though she’ll be sharing the stage with the likes of A-list celebrities including actress Selena Gomez and “Girls” creator Lena Dunham, Erin Merryn isn’t concerned about increasing her Q score.
The Schaumburg resident is instead relishing her selection as one of Glamour magazine’s Women of the Year, along with Gomez, Dunham, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a group of female Olympians and others. Along with her honor comes the chance to speak at Monday night’s swanky awards ceremony at New York City’s Carnegie Hall about her mission to educate children about sexual abuse.
