Described by historian Joshua Zeitz as “the women who made America modern,” flappers were young women from the Roaring Twenties whose behavior was a significant challenge to Victorian gender roles. She drank, smoke, drove automobiles, danced to jazz, wore excessive makeup, treated sex casually, shortened her skirt, bobbed her hair, and otherwise flouted social and sexual norms. More importantly, however, she also worked outside the home and made her own keep, and otherwise was among the first to secure modern liberties women have today.
The flapper was, in many ways, the result of a larger social change. By 1920 women had achieved the right to vote and the 1925 Scopes trial rocked the stolidly religious American society. Increasingly, young women were discarding old and rigid ideas about gender roles and other Victorian norms in favor of consumerism and personal choice. By rebelling against Victorian morality in favor of a more sexually confident ideal, the flapper enthusiastically embraced a new era of modernity
