The 20th Century Woman

The early 20th century shaped the image of the average American woman from a dainty, typically-ladylike woman to a woman of sensuality, liberty, equality, and outspokenness. From the 1920s to the 1940s, the social changes that the American woman went through contributed to the today’s current image of the typical 20th century woman.

One thought on “The 20th Century Woman

  1. This chart is visually appealing and flowed so well! I read the information smoothly and I loved how you connected the role of women during the first half of the 20th Century to the modern woman today. You described the sudden surge of women desiring this new sense of outward expression concisely, and brought up a good point with WWII diminishing that perception again because of Suburbia norms. I think that I would have loved to have lived in the 20th Century experiencing the emerging role of a rebellious flapper or a determined women’s rights activist. The change seems exciting.
