During the 1920’s, the view of women changed dramatically as a “new woman” emerged. The old Gibson Girl that personified the role model for women was gone. They started wearing shorter skirts and dresses with low collars and waistbands. They were given the right to vote and started working in places other than textile mills. It became a common thing for women to wear makeup and smoke cigarettes. At first, this was hard for people to get used to. But soon, they accepted it and said goodbye to Gibson Girl and hello to the New Woman.
