I had an interesting time researching this piece on legendary Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown for The Tubridy Show (presented by Dave Fanning) earlier today.

As a feminist myself I find HGB pretty fascinating. She seemed to be determined, outrageous, fun and fearless… but a feminist? Well, I think so. There are schools of feminism and hers was both sex-positive and particularly focused on using men to achieve what you want… even if that was, well, a man.

Have a listen here and let me know what you think.
