Biographical/Historical Note

During the 1920s, American culture was rapidly expanding, earning the name, "The Roaring Twenties." Magazines were increasingly popular, particularly ones that concentrated on women and cinema. By the end of the decade, before the crash, movies had experimented with color, talking sequences, music, and sound effects. In terms of women in this period, the women's movement succeeded in 1920 as the 19th Amendment was ratified. Everyday luxuries increased for the average woman, and there was great, public discussion about marriage, divorce, career, beauty, and health.
