Hist. he role of women in society had taken a massive leap forward In 1920 when all women were given the right to vote. The roles of American Women in the 1920s varied considerably between the ‘New Woman’, the Traditionalists and the older generation. The ‘New Woman’, including the young Flappers, embraced new fashions, personal freedom and new ideas that challenged the traditional role of women.
For your initial post, discuss, what did it mean to be a flapper? To what extent was the flapper an outgrowth of the post-war changes in American society? What do the concerns over flappers tell us about (some) women in the 1920s?
