    1. The women of that age staged a revolution that history has mostly ignored; yet the way we live now was introduced by them. I find it interesting that the ‘Flapper’ is primarily remembered as frivolous but the ‘style’ was a political statement.

      1. I’ll have to think about a way in, if that makes sense. What piques my curiosity is why it happened: was it women winning the vote or was it a sudden shift in consciousness? Why does our species have these bursts of social evolution?
