Helen Gurley Brown
Cosmopolitan’s Editor-in-Chief on Men, Money & Success

Joan Burnie, a columnist and associate editor at Cosmopolitan UK, describes what it was like to meet the former editor-in-chief of the magazine Helen Gurley Brown who passed away at the age of 90 on August 13, 2012. Burnie describes each of her visits to the office as “royal” and says that Brown did a lot to transform Cosmopolitan magazine. Journalist Penny Taylor also gives her opinion on the magazine editor and author, stating that even though Brown claimed to be a feminist, her stance on women and sex had outraged many in the feminist movement. Both Burnie and Taylor agree that Brown’s main outlook was that women could get everything they want out of life if they go about getting it the right way.
