Women in the 1920’s.
A woman from the 1920’s would be surprised to know that she would be remembered as a “new woman.” Many changes would enter her life in the next ten years. Significant changes for women took place in politics, the home, the workplace, and in education. Some were the results of laws passed, many resulted from newly developed technologies, and all had to do with changing attitudes toward the place of women in society. The seeing of woman started rough, they whore restricted clothes and were not expected to be seen smoking in public. They had no rights in politics and could not vote for elections. The working industry for women in the 1920’s did not really exist, because it was only very low-paid jobs there were open for women. Most of it was secretarial, and factory jobs. This was all before First World War. When the First World War started, many women worked on factories of weapon industry. In 1920 women got their rights, to vote for election. But even though they were a part of politics now, they were not seen as candidates for election. Throughout the 1920’s women were much more likely to have a job, a better job. But if they had the exact same job, as a man and did the same work every week. They were still less paid as the man were. Women were now more likely to wear more sexy and wild clothes, women was in general more independent than before. And they was also more a like to get a divorce.
