New York City in 1965 is filled with opportunities for single girls like Alice Weiss, who leaves her small Midwestern town to chase her big-city dreams and lands a job working for the first female editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown. But nothing could have prepared her for the world she enters. Editors and writers refuse to work for Helen and when someone tries to pull Alice into a scheme to sabotage her boss, she is more determined than ever to help Helen succeed. While pressure mounts at the magazine, Alice struggles not to lose sight of her own dreams. If Helen has taught her anything, it’s that a woman can demand to have it all.
