“Never fail to know that if you are doing all the talking, you are boring somebody.” ~ Helen Gurley Brown
In 1962, when Brown was 40, her book Sex and the Single Girl was published in 28 countries, and stayed on the bestseller lists for over a year. In 1964 the book inspired a film of the same name starring Natalie Wood.
In 1965, Brown became editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, then a literary magazine famed for high-toned content, and reinvented it as a magazine for the modern single career-woman. In the 1960s, Brown was an outspoken advocate of women’s sexual freedom and sought to provide women with role models in her magazine.
She claimed that women could have it all – “love, sex, and money”. As a result of her advocacy, glamorous, fashion-focused women were sometimes called “Cosmo Girls”. Her work played a part in what is often called the sexual revolution.
