As we mentioned earlier, legendary Cosmo editor and progressive feminist Helen Gurley Brown passed away on Monday at age 90.
Many were affected by Sex and the Single Girl writer's passing, including celebs like Lena Dunham, Mayor Mike Bloomberg, and Ann Curry.
Some of their sentiments include:
"RIP Helen Gurley Brown, you beautiful enigma. Confused but wholehearted love from mouseburgers & feminists everywhere."
"Beauty can't amuse you, but brainwork..reading, writing, thinking..can."-Helen Gurley Brown, once editor of Cosmo, has died at 90.
Mayor Mike Bloomberg:
"Today New York City lost a pioneer who reshaped not only the entire media industry, but the nation’s culture. She was a role model for the millions of women whose private thoughts, wonders and dreams she addressed so brilliantly in print. She was a quintessential New Yorker: never afraid to speak her mind and always full of advice. She pushed boundaries and often broke them, clearing the way for younger women to follow in her path. I was honored to be her friend and know how deeply she cared about the City she called home. We will miss her, but her impact on our culture and society will live on forever."
Her legacy will certainly live on. She will be greatly missed
