Morgan Marant "A Flapping Revolution"

The topic for my paper is the revolution of women’s fashion and rights in the 1920’s. I’ve always had a love for fashion and when I went looking for a topic, I knew that I wanted fashion to be apart of my project. The NHD topic for 2012 was Revolution, Reaction and Reform and there was a definite time period in American history where fashion was revolutionized; the 1920’s. Women began to revolt against their typical roles in society and they began cutting their hair and wearing make up. I also noticed that in correlation with that time period began a period of revolt by women for women’s rights. I began to compare the two revolts and I cam up with my own theory that they were very closely related and that women’s fashions inspired the women’s rights movement.
