How women's life changed in the 1920's?
In this essay I will be talking about the social changes/gains that women made in the 1920's. Attitudes were tolerant towards the working women as their husbands were off fighting to defend their country in the late 1910's, but when the war ended, attitudes changed for the better. Some of the major things that changed for women was the right to vote, could get jobs and education. The prevailing attitude that women should settle down at home and quietly care for their husbands and children. I will be explaining in further depth the social gains that changed women's life's for the better.

Bathtub gin, speakeasies, hot jazz, the Charleston. . . A wild era, a romantic era. Thorougly modern. In the 1920's, hope sprung afresh from the battlefields of Europe, a new freedom. The United States had been engaged in a major European war and had been on the winning side. The farmboys returned home, itching to live in the city. Flappers were bobbing their hair, rolling down their stockings, raising their hemlines and wearing makeup.
The "sexual revolution" of the 1920's was merely a phrase coined by the advertising industry geared...VIEW DOCUMENT

At the imperial conference in 1921, prime minister Arthur Meighen opposed a British plan for renewing the alliance with Japan. This decision was based strongly on the American opposition. In 1922, a diplomatic crisis occurred in Turkey, the Canadians did not help, this showed their growing independence.

Race in the 1920's Kyle Pappalardo AMH 2020 2/24/02 The most important point that Nella Larsen's Passing illustrates about race in the 1920's is, that race at this time in history is by far still the greatest factor dealt with by society in America. The fact that black people would hide their own identity in an attempt to "pass" as white to get ahead is an ideal representation of race at this point in history....VIEW DOCUMENT
Imagine a time without television, movies, cars, or basketball. At the end of the 19th century these inventions, taken for granted in today's society, were just making their first appearances. Thomas Edison created the kinetoscope in 1894, and American's saw their first moving picture. A few years later, Thomas Arnat came out with his "Vitascope", the best-designed projector thus far. It allowed Edison's movies to be seen by a room full of people at the same time. The first gasoline-powered car was invented in 1891, by John Lambert. Although new advancements and improvements were...VIEW DOCUMENT
Organized crime flourished during the 1920's. This was largely due to prohibition. There was a number a people that particularly stood out during this time as mob figures.
Alphonse Capone is one of the greatest mob figures ever known in the United States. He represents organized crime in the 1920's and would be a crime of its own to not mention him when talking about crime in the 1920's. Some of his nicknames were "Big Al", "Snorky", and "Scareface". He was born Jan 17 1899 in Brooklyn, NY. Al joined the Five Points Gang, which was run by Johnny Torrio at a young age in 1915. After a while there was some tension...VIEW DOCUMENT
In 1920, after 72 years of struggle, American women received the right to vote. After the 19th Amendment passed, reformers talked about female voters uniting to clean up politics, improve society, and end discrimination.
At first, male politicians moved aggressively to court the women's vote, passing legislation guaranteeing women's right to serve on juries and hold public office. Congress also passed legislation to set up a national system of women's and infant's health care clinics as well as a constitutional amendment prohibiting child labor, a measure supported by many women's groups.
But the early momentum quickly dissipated, as the women's movement divided...VIEW DOCUMENT
Present-day aviators are heavily indebted to their predecessors from the 1920's. Although man first took flight in 1905, the twenties got the gears of aviation cranking in the right direction. Barnstormers would perform stunts at air shows and attract large crowds, however their daredevil approach achieved mixed results. The U.S. government also brought attention to aviation but their approach was very different. Through the use of the air mail service and legislation, they proved that commercial aviation could be a profitable and safe business to develop. And finally, the successful flight of Charles Lindbergh brought world wide interest to the flying industry. His accomplishment helped...VIEW DOCUMENT
The nineteen twenties was a time of great change in the United States. When WWI ended there was a shift in the economy.

From Hair to Wear in the 1920's
In the 1920's women wanted a voice, they wanted to be heard, however the only problem was that nobody wanted to listen. Women figured that people didn't have to listen to them, but it was pretty hard not see them, so women started dressing in an outrageous manner, and attracting a lot of attention. These women were called flappers; they wore shocking outfits, lots of make-up, cut their hair, and openly smoked and drank.
One of the greatest things about the flapper look was that it was attainable for all. It was cheap, weather you were rich or poor you could be in style. That's...VIEW DOCUMENT
The motto of the United States of America is "E Pluribus Unum" meaning 'Out of one, many'. It neatly recognizes that although America may be a single nation, it is also one originally made up of immigrants who arrived not only from Europe and Asia, but forcibly as slaves from Africa and of Native Americans. Its population is the most racially and culturally diverse in the world and for that reason is often referred to as a "Melting Pot".
During the 1920's, racial tensions in American society reached boiling point. New non-protestant immigrants like Jews and Catholics had been arrived in their masses from...VIEW DOCUMENT
Megan Will Mrs. Fettig English 10B 1 March 2001 From the mournful melodies of the blues to the soulful sounds of jazz, the development of music in the 1920’s truly defined music as we know it today. The twenties, with their own glamour and pizzazz, gave music a newfound freedom to grow and prosper. America was credited as the “home of the jazz”, and names of influential American musicians were known from the Louisiana bayous to the streets of Paris. The unforeseen impact of the Harlem Renaissance inundated the nation while the talent demonstrated by thousands brought hope to many. The newly redefined music industry, with its new sense of style, only heightened America’s...VIEW DOCUMENT

But To what extent did the feminists of...VIEW DOCUMENT
Many people wonder if sports were different 80 years ago than it is today. Well I have done some research and figured out the answer. With the research I have found I determined that sports have changed a little bit but overall each sport is basically the same. Some of examples of sports that have not changed a lot are hockey, baseball and the Olympics. Hockey's National Hockey League got started in 1920, which is still around today. The game has changed slightly since its beginning but it is not a whole different game. Baseball hasn't changed much and it doesn't...VIEW DOCUMENT

Although Hjalmar Branting said "The League of Nations is not the only organization, albeit the most official, which has inscribed the maintenance of peace through law on its banner." , the League of Nations was the most successful organization in the 1920's. There were three major reasons why the League was successful in the 1920's. They were victorious, because they settled disputes over countries, had many organizations, and last but not least they were successful because of the signing of the Pact of Paris.
In the 1920's the League of Nations managed to settle many...VIEW DOCUMENT

"IN THE 1920s WOMEN STARTED TO EMERGE AS A SIGNIFICANT FORCE" Discuss this statement
In the 1920's women started to emerge as a significant force. Before the 1920's, women rarely found jobs in male-dominated fields because of their status in Victorian and Edwardian societies. However all this had changed in the 1920's. Women became more involved in visual arts as more than a hobby, new lifestyles were promoted, women were given a chance to play a role in political issues and women began to have some say in the direction of their lives. This all happened due to two reasons. One was the thinning of the male population due to World War I and two, the continuing awareness of the...VIEW DOCUMENT
In America, the 1920's were considered to be a 'roaring' time for all Americans. However, it seems to be that this 'roar' was an illusion for some Americans. This time was known as Americas 'age of excess'. In 1921, the gross national product was $74 billion, by 1229, it was $104.4 billion, but how much of this was affecting all Americans. Within this essay, I will be looking at different actions, which affected different people in different ways. For example: while the rich got richer, the poor made very little headway, with many families becoming poorer in the 1920's. By the end of the 1920's the number of people living below the poverty line (those who do not earn enough to buy food,...VIEW DOCUMENT

In January 1920 the USA introduced Prohibition, which band the making, selling and transportation of any kind of alcoholic drink. This was made part of the American Constitution the 18th Amendment. A separate law, the Volstead Act, defined an alcoholic drink that contained more than 0.5% of Alcohol which banned wine, beer and whiskey.
The contrast between the new and changing attitudes and traditional values was unmistakably present during the 1920's. This clash between the old and the new had many roots and was inevitable. A new sense of awareness washed over minorities in our nation, especially blacks who began to realize that they were entitled to their own subculture, pursuit of success, and share of the American dream. This ideal was expressed by Langston Hughes in 'The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain.' They were supported by the growing number of young, financially well-to-do liberals who formed the...VIEW DOCUMENT
