The New Woman
The “American Dream”
Wealth as a symbol of Decay and Corruption
Life as a Party
Who is Jordan Baker and how is she a new women? Jordan has a new kind of air around her. She goes around town with no escort. She cheats in the golf tournament. She manipulates men into doing what ever she wants. She parties with strangers. She has always been “incurably dishonest” (58) What else you ask? Well lets see.
The American Dream
Jordan aspires to be an "All American" female icon! With a championship in golf, a high social status, and a little manipulation, how could she not?
Jordan is very strong in spirit. Her morality may be a bit off, but she knows what she wants and knows how to get it. Her demanding personality comes off as oppressive, however, she truly is iconic.
