‘Game changing man’: Marcus Rashford’s tireless work to end child food poverty has seen him recognised as the only male winner during the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards 2021
Host for the evening, Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan, introduced Marcus with a reference to the school meals scandal from last summer.
She said: ‘The man who really makes it sting when tax season rolls round and I learn that zero of my government-owed money is going to feed Britain’s hungry children like I reasonably assumed that it would in a compassionate society.
‘He’s a tireless campaigner for homelessness, hunger and literacy and who in just 24 hours last June forced the government to u-turn on their “carefully considered decision” to end free school meals for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
‘And in his spare time he plays for Manchester United and England. Our game changing man is the undeterred Marcus Rashford.’

Posing for a striking shoot for WSJ, he said: ‘I’m a person that’s still close to his community. I see people going through what I was going through when I was younger. I just understand it.’
In the space of 12 months, humble Rashford has led a campaign to end child food poverty in the U.K., taking on the British government to secure millions of free meals for underprivileged kids whose families are facing financial crisis.
He has worked with Boris Johnson and the Queen put Rashford on her Birthday Honours list in October—though he insists a royal accolade misses the point.
He said: ‘There’s things that are right and things that are wrong. And a lot of the way that the system is set up for these children is wrong. I think people can’t really turn away from that.’
Surprise appearance: Sadiq Khan praised the NHS and introduced a special game changer award for them at the end of the Glamour livestream
And although Marcus was the only male winner on Thursday, in a final surprise Sadiq Khan also made an appearance to announce a special NHS game changer award.
He said: ‘To all the NHS workers.. your actions this past year have been heroic. I’ve been blown away by your courage, humanity and unwavering dedication.’
NHS staff were then seen at Northwick Park hospital in London accepting the award and telling viewers they do not see themselves as heroes, only as doing their job.
The 2021 Gamechangers awards will honour women who have broken down barriers, incited change and campaigned for justice throughout their careers.
