What is a "Flapper?"

Flappers were typically young women that had bobbed hair and short skirts. They also wore a heavy amount of make-up. Flappers symbolized the new liberated women in the 1920's. Many people would see the "boyish" look and the shocking behavior as a change in morals. This idea of Flapper image reinforced the idea that women had more freedom.
