Helen Gurley Brown, the iconic editor who gave Cosmopolitan “its purr,” has died. She was 90. An obituary in the New York Times credits Ms. Brown with being the first person to “introduce frank discussions of sex” into women’s magazines. She also authored the seminal “Sex and the Single Girl” in 1964, which not only told unmarried women to have sex, but that they should enjoy it.
