Enrichment – flappers in focus

conway2If you click here you will get to a lovely article from Kassia St Clair about the ultimate symbol of the 1920s – the flapper in the 1843 magazine.

As St Clair states “Once the war was over, many women returned to their old lives, but the spirit of emancipation persisted…Meanwhile, the crumbling of the old social order and the growth in the retail sector meant that women that might once have gone into domestic service became shop girls, living in cities with a disposable income to spend on traveling, make-up, clothes, fashion magazines and cinema tickets.”
