Fundamentalism is a religious viewpoint based on the belief that biblical events happened exactly as described. One of the most popular fundamentalists of this era was preacher Billy Sunday. Sunday condemned flappers and anyone who supported expanding the roles for women.
Women now had a vote and increased economic power. More women started going to college, and therefore entered the workforce in fields such as nursing, teaching, and social work. These were jobs that, prior to the 1920s, were rarly done by women.
