Turn of The Century

The turn of the century gave birth to the roaring 20's. A very familiar symbol of the 20's is the "new woman." The lady who wears short skirts and bobbed hair. She smoked, drank, and said things that may be deemed unladylike. She would act like a man does. This newfound freedom to say and sex whatever you please sounded great back then, but how did it effect the future?

At the time women were not as educated as men. They were very excited to do everything that men get to do...including investing and starting business. This would have been a good thing, but without the proper education most failed. Then they blamed the failure on men "rigging" the system. This started a dangerous incline in controversy between men and women that still rages on today. Now women may get the same rights as men, but do the continuing blaming disputes really benefit the country? I don't think so.

  1. I agree in the fact that many failed without proper education.
