"Scanlon's shrewed biography reveals a woman of contraditions...a strategically racy cultural pioneer." -"O, The Oprah Magazine" As the author of the revolutionary "Sex and the Single Girl" and the longtime editor-in-chief of "Cosmopolitan" magazine, Helen Gurley Brown changed how women thought about sex, money, and their bodies in a way that resonates in our culture today. In Jennifer Scanlon's widely acclaimed biography, the award-winning scholar related Brown's escape from her humble beginnings in the Ozarks to her eyebrow- raising exploits as a young woman in New York, and her late-blooming career as the world's first "lipstick feminist." A mesmerizing look at an often overlooked figure, "Bad Girls Go Everywhere" will appeal to everyone from "Sex and the City" aficionados to students of women's studies.
