She ended her speech by shouting: “Impeach him.”

The night’s other Women of the Year included the organizers of the Women’s March; Solange Knowles; the “Wonder Woman” director, Patty Jenkins; Gigi Hadid; and Muzoon Almellehan, the 19-year-old Syrian activist and refugee who is Unicef’s youngest Goodwill Ambassador.

The ceremony was the last one for Cindi Leive, who is leaving Glamour after 16 years as its editor. Ms. Leive was given a surprise Woman of the Year award of her own. “Control freaks hate surprises,” she said before going on to talk about the power of women.

“This is really a singular moment for women,” she said. “I’m so excited that we all get to seize it right now.”

The most sobering part of the evening came when four women recounted their experiences with sexual harassment: the law professor Anita Hill; the Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, who is among dozens of women who have accused Larry Nassar of abuse; the model Cameron Russell, who posted anonymous stories of harassment on her Instagram; and Ann Cardenas, a New York City police officer who settled a harassment lawsuit with the city and two co-workers last year.

After sharing their stories, the women invited members of the audience who have been sexually abused to stand. Next, they asked those who knew someone who had been sexually abused to stand. And finally, they called on those “committing to make things better” to stand.
