Scanlon's Bad Girls Go Everywhere Goes Global

Story posted June 18, 2009

Bad Girls Go Everywhere: The Life of Helen Gurley Brown (Oxford University Press, 2009), Professor of Gender and Women's Studies Jennifer Scanlon's biography of the longtime Cosmopolitan editor, is being released in the United Kingdom to much fanfare in the London press and around the world.


A review in the June 11, 2009, edition of The Times reads, "Jennifer Scanlon's magnificent and exhaustive biography effectively makes the case for Gurley Brown taking her place in the feminist pantheon, alongside such better-known heroines as Betty Friedan."

Read the The Times review.

On the heels of a review of Bad Girls Go Everywhere in the May 17, 2009, edition of The Guardian, Scanlon was invited to write a piece for the London newspaper. Her article, "The Practical Feminist," appears in the June 12, 2009, edition.
