Birth of 20th-century WomanStreaming Video - 2006
Living in the era of The Great Gatsby, flappers succeeded in breaking through the barricades of gender prejudice and social inequality on a large scale. Using vibrant archival film clips and interviews with women who came of age during the Roaring 20s in Britain, this program chronicles the emergence of the modern woman in the aftermath of World War I. Higher education for women, the entry of women into politics and the professions, women's suffrage, new attitudes toward sexuality, and other topics are addressed within the historical context of the early 1900s.
