Thoughts on the 1920's

The best about the 1920's in Greta's mind is that she get to go to clubs and parties every night. Her least favorite thing about the 1920's is the image women had on the big screen. Greta saw herself impacting society by redefining the way women are seen on the big screen. She believes she will be remembered now a days by " the way I changed how women are portrayed on the big screen." "The way the 20's should be remembered is the fun decade, when everyone would go out and have fun at the clubs every night."
