Wise words from a forward-thinking female

Helen Gurley Brown, editor of Cosmopolitan magazine and author of Sex and the Single Girl, died today aged 90. She changed perceptions of women in the 60s and beyond, in the household, work place and bedroom. She was a fashion icon, a feminist, and a fabulous business woman.

She said and did many things within her lifetime to champion equality for women, but she’s probably best known for representing the truth about women and sex; that women also enjoy sex, that it isn’t just about pleasing a man, and that single women, even the good girls, have it.

In her words: “Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.”

    Was that a tv show?

  2. Yes, but did she ever ask me to be a Cosmo centerfold? No.

    Hm. Maybe she was pretty astute at that… : )

    • Total shocker. You should start a campaign. If not a centrefold, at least a calendar, no? Mr July? I would buy it. Well, actually, I rarely use calendars, but I would definitely nod in appreciation.
