Flappers do the Charleston

Flappers, in the 1920s, were young women who bobbed their hair, flaunted their rejection of “acceptable behavior,” wore short skirts, and were seen as brash because of their heavy makeup, drinking, smoking, driving automobiles, and treating sex casually. Flappers came into being during a period of liberalism, increased transatlantic cultural exchange, and political and social turbulence. The term itself is traced to the movie, The Flapper.
