Women of the1920'sWomen during the1920's lifestyle, fashion, and morals were very different than women before the1920's. Flappers became the new big thing after the 19th amendment was passed. Women's morals were loosened, clothing and haircuts got shorter, and fashion had a huge role in these young women.
Women before the1920's were very different from thewomen of the Roarin' 20's. Gwen Hoerr Jordan stated that the ladies before the1920's wore dresses that covered up most of their skin, had pinned up long hair, were very modest, had chaperones and had men make all of their decisions (1).

In conjunction with the "Sexual Revolution" the image of the flapper emerged.

From her bright red lipstick, bobbed hair and fashionable clothes to smoking cigarettes, petting and consuming alcohol, the1920's individual was defied a rebel by the older generation. The image of a Flapper corrupted its elders and eventually overreached itself less through lack of morals than through lack of taste." The advertising industry not onlyVIEW DOCUMENT

In today's society if there was another depression like inthe1920's, and 1930's, it would take a lot for this world to turn to fascism.

The only ways fascism could happen is if there was nowhere else to turn. With the world today I think we have many options to choose from before we will ever have to face fascism again. VIEW DOCUMENT

United States entered the fray in 1917. A significant reason for
