The Fabulous Flappers of the 1920s were a new breed of young women who flaunted their disdain for conventional social and sexual norms. Flappers bobbed their hair, wore short skirts, excessive makeup, smoked, and drove automobiles. Despite Prohibition, Flappers openly drank and frequented Speakeasies. Popular actresses of the day including Clara Bow, Louise Brooks, and Joan Crawford built their careers on the Flapper's controversial image. Although the Great Depression brought the Flapper's high spirited and hedonistic lifestyle to an end, they remain a cultural icon of the 20th century.
