This is a fascinating read about Helen Gurley Brown's life, loves and the positions on sexuality, race, politics, etc. that she did and didn't take.

I hope you enjoy it.

Reminded me of Mad Men. Can't quit smoking now for many days.

Very interesting. I've been reading Cosmo my entire adult life. I'm now far older than its purported readers, but still enjoy it. I remember reading HGB's editorials when I was young. It's telling that she faced many of the same insecurities we all do.

Thank you, Anthony.

Ditto, Quinn.  Plus, we are still fighting for equality as she did also. 
Plus, I think their demographic is skewed.

I agree. I know lots of women in their forties and up who read the magazine.
