Famous Flappers

Flappers were a "new breed" of young women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. 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.Flappers had their origins in the liberal period of the Roaring Twenties, the social, political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of World War I, as well as the export of American jazz culture to Europe.

Why did Flappers become famous?

Flappers attracted unprecedented publicity by their fame as movies stars and celebrities together with their exuberant, unconventional that challenged the traditional ideas by wearing short skirts, make-up, drinking and smoking in public and acting in an unladylike fashion.
