Helen Gurley Brown Has Died…


The famous Cosmopolitan Magazine editor, Helen Gurley Brown, has died at age 90.

Brown died Monday at a hospital in New York after a brief hospitalization. Her book, “Sex and the Single Girl,” made her a celebrity in 1962, and taking over Hearst’s Cosmopolitan gave her a pulpit for her ideas that lasted for dccades.

In 1997 she summed up her career:

“I would want my legacy to be, ‘She created something that helped people.’ My reader, I always felt, was someone who needed to come into her own.”
