When Helen Gurley Brown’s Sex and the Single Girl first appeared in 1962, it whistled into buttoned-down America like a bombshell: Brown declared that it was okay— even imperative—for unmarried women to have and enjoy a sex life, and that equal rights for women should extend to the bedroom and the workplace. “How dare you?” thundered newspapers, radio hosts, and (mostly male) citizens. But more than two million women bought the book and hailed her as a heroine. Brown was also pilloried as a scarlet woman and a traitor to the women’s movement when she took over the failing Hearst magazine Cosmopolitan and turned it into a fizzy pink guidebook for “do-me” feminism. As the first magazine geared to the rising wave of single working women, it sold wildly. Today, more than 68 million young women worldwide are still reading some form of Helen Gurley Brown’s audacious yet comforting brand of self-help. “HGB” wasn’t the ideal poster girl for secondwave feminism, but she certainly started the conversation. Brown campaigned for women’s reproductive freedom and advocated skill and “brazenry” both on the job and in the boudoir—along with serial plastic surgery. When she died in 2012, her front-page obituary in The New York Times noted that though she succumbed at ninety, “parts of her were considerably younger.” Her life story is astonishing, from her roots in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, to her single-girl decade as a Mad Men–era copywriter in Los Angeles, which informed her first bestseller, to her years at the helm of Cosmopolitan. Helen Gurley Brown told her own story many times, but coyly, with plenty of camouflage. Here, for the first time, is the unvarnished and decoded truth about “how she did it”—from her comet-like career to “bagging” her husband of half a century, the movie producer David Brown. Full of firsthand accounts of HGB from many of her closest friends and rediscovered, little-known interviews with the woman

"New Year's Resolutions: 1. Lloyd Layton will know I exist. He once said three whole words to me, so this is obviously progress.

Am I Pretty Enough Yet? is a self-help book aimed at 13- to 18-year-old girls, designed to empower them as they navigate their teenage years and grow into young women. Inspired by the many girls she has worked with – and the numerous insecurities, fears and pressures they experience – Julia Armstrong has created a book which is pitched directly at teenagers. Candid and informal, it ranges across topics such as beauty, weight, celebrity culture, sex, social media and body hair. It will answer many of the questions teenage girls have and support them in dealing with the challenges of contemporary society. “Boys have many difficulties too but this book is for the girls, and the world they have to negotiate today is far harder than my own was and is some cause for concern. What is expected of them, of you, from all angles is for many unobtainable and for all unreasonable. It seems to me, that in many ways, girls have it harder than ever before.” Self-esteem is the most powerful tool a woman can have, but few young women are born with it. Many women, especially young girls, can feel that they are not good enough, not pretty enough or not slim enough. The goal of this book is to help remedy this, empowering young girls to look after and fortify their emotional well-being. Challenging modern stereotypes, it provides teenage girls with a guide on how to deal with the negative pressure from the media and peer groups and the pressure teenagers often put on themselves. Written by a teacher with over 20 years' experience dealing with the issues it covers, Am I Pretty Enough Yet? offers self-help tools and techniques to build up self-esteem in young women.

This is a journal created from recordings transcribed of the journey Tina went through to find healing from a lifetime of abuse.

Originally Tina started recording her journey in hopes it would help someone else coming out of an abusive relationship. She didn't know early memories of her childhood would surface and she would be faced with an even greater pain and sadness in her life. Her entire world changed from what she knew as a successful business woman and socialite to losing everything and everyone in her life. This is a story of pain, great sadness, the agony of the healing process, and seeking God into the final healing she would receive in the desert.

Do you feel broken, condemned, worthless, lost and unable to see beyond your past? Do you believe your past has disqualified you from becoming the woman God created you to be? You are very valuable to God-despite the mess that your life may be right now, despite the ugliness that you may see in your life, and despite everything that you feel right now. God wants you standing tall and beautiful. He wants you to be an example of His mercy, grace, and love. He wants you to radiate His glory and beauty. God is able and willing to take what may be broken, and put it back together. He takes what may seem worthless and restores its worth. He takes what may be dirty and old, and He washes and cleans it up to become new. Our trash is God's treasure. We throw people away when we reject, condemn, and judge them, but what we don't realize is that we are all God's treasure. We may have been discarded by others, but God will never discard us. He creates only masterpieces, unique works of art that are meant to be treasured because of their great worth. You are a designer's original-His masterpiece. Don't let people tell you that you have made too many mistakes or done too many ungodly things and that you have become trash. No matter what you have done in your past. Nothing can change who you are or how He sees you-You are and will always be His daughter.
