“In my era, we had individuality.
We did as we pleased.
We stayed up late.
We dressed the way we wanted.”

“The New Woman of the 1920s boldly asserted her right to dance, drink, smoke, and date—to work her own property, to live free of the strictures that governed her mother’s generation. She flouted Victorian-era conventions and scandalized her parents. In many ways, she controlled her own destiny.” ~ Joshua Zeitz
