The flapper changed women’s attitudes and habits – and how did society react?
“There was no such thing then as a women’s movement… or a women’s rights movement… Women were all about how you would run a business… how you would make money…”
As a society, we now know we were a little confused by the flapper. One of the reasons we are in this predicament is how women’s roles have changed. The flapper changed so many things that I have covered in previous installments.
Women’s roles have changed:
The social standing of the woman and how she could be viewed
The role of the woman, her appearance and appearance of her children
Women’s role as wives – not only in marriage, but also as home-makers and mothers. (This was known as the “Warm Bitch” stereotype at that time)
Innately or unconsciously, women and men viewed women from the ‘lower’ classes as women only. We still have this mindset today, especially in the upper classes.
Feminism was a revolution when it was founded.
What about the revolution that did not happen?
The women’s movement did happen – many people made an effort to change the status quo. But the outcome was not what we hoped for, and much of the effort to have a revolution was wasted.
A society that celebrates the female body?
The women’s movement was not about the woman as an individual. It was about the entire women’s body. But the idea of nudity is taboo in our culture, and much effort was spent to show off the women naked.
Another problem we had to deal with was that the culture is often un-naturist. People were looking at the woman from the outside instead of the inside. When you are not showing your body, and your body is not the center of attention, people think, “What a bitch.” (See the previous paragraph for why nudity is uncomfortable).
The women’s movement did not lead us to nudity as the default. It brought us to a point where we could see the female naked body – all of us – from all angles. But not without nudity.
For example, the way women are dressed in the fashion industry was not just about clothes, the fact that women wear their body parts is a large part of what people say about women
There’s a difference.
We are living in a world
