Transcript of All about the flappers!!

The Flappers A young woman, especially one in the 1920s who behaved and dressed in a boldly manner!

Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. this is a flappper smoking.
Some flappers indulged in cigarette use-some even dabbled in cocaine.
After World War I, the Roaring Twenties saw lots of change. Women had the right to vote and new senses of independence and may have fueled the flapper fire.
This new breed of flappers listened to the new jazz sound and danced provocatively at jazz clubs. Flappers of the 1920s are possibly best known for their style The flappers introduced a more boyish look.
Young women showed off their legs in short skirts, chopped their hair off into short bobs and wore excessive amounts of makeup!! Flapper- Flappers had their own slang, with terms like "snugglepup"
which ment a man who frequents petting parties! or "I have to go see a man about a dog" often meant going to buy whiskey! Flappers did away with corsets and pantaloons in favor of "step-in" panties. Without the old restrictive corsets, flappers wore simple bust bodices to make their chest hold still when dancing. Flapper dresses were straight and loose, leaving the arms bare and dropping the waistline to the hips. Skirts rose to just below the knee by 1927, allowing flashes of knee to be seen when a girl danced or walked into a breeze, although the way they danced made any long loose skirt flap up to show their knees. It took the stock market crash of 1929 to bring the era of the flapper to a sudden end Thank you for watching my prezi!! By:
