Storyboard Text

  • Before the war, women dressed extremely modestly.  They had long hair that was often worn up in a fancy bun, and dresses that showed barely any skin.  
  • When the men went off to war, women had to be the ones to do their jobs, such as working on farms...
  • ... Or working in munitions factories to create more weapons.  
  • When the men returned home, many women did not want to go back to the way things were before, including Anna, who had married Clyde once he returned home.  
  • Anna adored the sense of independence she gained from working on the farm, she had a whole life ahead of her at the age of 19 that she didn't want to throw away.  But at the start of the 1920's, women would take on a new appearance...
  • These young women were flappers.  The term is used to describe young girls who acted and dressed in a way that would never be considered imaginable before the war.  
  • Alright, I'm sure it will be swell!
  • There's this spiffy new speakeasy  I heard of, We should go tonight! 
  • The way they dressed, acted and spoke often shocked the older generations.  
  • Flappers had attitude. They smoked, drank, wore makeup, and many joined the growing popularity of the jazz age, which included dances such as the Charleston and Shimmy.  
  •  Many women including Anna enjoyed the new image, which allowed them more freedom to make movement easier.  From 1925-1927, the flapper dress only went just below the knee! She also joined the trend of cutting her hair into a short style called a bob.  
  • This is a real swanky joint!
  • It was through the spunk and determination of girls like Anna, who dared to be a lot more rebellious than the generations before them, that brought women one step closer to being treated as equally as men, and breaking the mold that women were once placed in.  I wonder what Anna would think of how far women's rights have come today...
  • It sure is!  And not having to wear such long dresses to dance any more is the cat's meow!
  • That place is the bees-knees!
