Bonus Question: Origins of Chick Lit?

Does anyone know what's considered to be the first novel in the chick lit genre? It must have been before Sex and the City went on the air.

And don't say Pride and Prejudice, even though it meets all the core criteria of looking for "Mr. Right."

The UK edition of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones's Diary was published in January of 1996. Candace Bushnell's Sex and the City appeared later that year, in August.
