"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.
