Flappers were young women who challenged traditional ideas of womanhood in the 1920s.
In the 1920s women started gaining more rights and independence. More women also started to work in factories which was very different than what most people were used to.
Prohibition was a ban on alcohol. People though that this would help the economy and other things.
Many people were not happy with this and fought against it. Instead of helping, it actually hurt the economy as well as increasing crime rates. People made speakeasies as a way to still get alcohol.
The Scopes Monkey Trial was a Tennessee court case in 1925 that focused on the issue of teaching evolution in public schools.
This problem was mainly caused because of fundamentalism, a religious belief characterized by the literal interpretation of the Bible.
