This is a poster of several aspects of the flapper. The flapper was a new style that many young women in the 1920s-30s followed. Flappers were very progressive for their time. They wore short skirts and cut their hair into bobs. They rejected the old idea that women were meant to stay at home. Many flapper women had jobs outside of home. They also expressed sexual freedom, and drank and smoked publicly. Flappers were often seen in bars or at clubs dancing to Jazz music.
