Green Party leader and Brighton Pavilion MP Caroline Lucas has been awarded the Red Hot Woman of the Year Award in the ethical/Eco category by Red magazine in association with Calvin Klein.

The Red Hot Women of the Year Awards, which were held last night, aim to celebrate the success of women in all fields of work.

Sam Baker, judge and editor-in-chief of Red magazine, which is the UK’s highest-selling glossy monthly for 30-something women, said:

“Caroline has devoted her life to environmental issues and this year achieved something that nobody thought possible – and did it in a landmark way.”

Katharine Viner, also on the judging panel and deputy editor of The Guardian, said:

“Caroline did something incredibly groundbreaking this year and made a real breakthrough in the area of green politics.”

Judges for the awards also included Elisabeth Murdoch, CEO of TV production company Shine Limited, entrepreneur and Channel 4 board member Martha Lane Fox, and Karen Brady, a TV broadcaster who was also the first female managing director of a top English football club.

On receiving the award, Caroline Lucas said:

“I am delighted to receive this award from Red magazine – and feel honoured to have had my work and that of the Green Party recognised in this way.”
