RIP Helen Gurley Brown, who died Monday in New York City at the age of 90.
HGB was and remains legendary, primarily for her promotion of sex and independence for single girls in Cosmopolitan magazine when she took over as editor in 1965. I had to note her passing here on Dirty Laundry because of her significance to my generation of women. To read her full obituaries go to The New York Times and/or Book Peeps.
“She was 90, though parts of her were considerably younger.”–from the NYTimes obituary
