Sex and The Single Girl: The Original Modern Woman
Original Air Date: October 18, 2016
Sex and The Single Girl: The original modern woman discussed as Maria Reitan speaks with Brooke Hauser, the Author of Enter Helen: The Invention of Helen Gurley Brown and the Rise of the Modern Single Woman.
A longtime journalist, she has written for Allure (where she was also a Contributing Editor), Glamour, Marie Claire, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications.
Her first book, The New Kids: Big Dreams and Brave Journeys at a High School for Immigrant Teens, won the American Library Association’s 2012 Alex Award. People selected The New Kids as one of its “Great Reads,” Parade chose it as a “Parade Pick,” and the New York Post called it “required reading.” Says The New York Times: “Ms. Hauser’s book is a refreshing reminder of the hurdles newcomers to this country still face and how many defy the odds to overcome them.”
