What was the 1920s era about?
This era was all about liberation from society's rules. Women were now allowed to vote, get jobs, drive cars, and many retaliated from the pressures of the social order by cutting their hair super short in a well-recognised bob and wearing heavy makeup. The term 'flapper' was thrown around to define women who had shocked the conservatives at the time by wearing hemlines that sat just above the knee. It was a very empowering time for many women.
