Cosmopolitan debuted in 1886 as a “family journal” and then became known as a literary magazine for the first half of the 20th century—that is, until legendary editor Helen Gurley Brown took the helm and transformed the brand into what you know and love today: a destination for real talk about all the things that matter to you, from pop culture and sex to politics and your career.
As the biggest young women’s media brand in the world, we’re in an intimate relationship and ongoing conversation with you, dear reader, and our 60+ editorial staffers (more on us below) hustle hard to pack every Cosmopolitan platform with fresh, funny, and fundamental intel on all the many things you truly want to know (from how to dirty-talk like a pro to crypto and QAnon).
