The quintessential [[TheRoaringTwenties Twenties]] (American, Western European or simply sophisticated) woman. A young lady even more spirited than the SpiritedYoungLady, where Victorian morals were loosened the same time [[OfCorsetHurts restrictive corsets]] were, thanks to newfound liberty, rising feminist movements, and, in the US, the 19th Amendment[[note]]Which forbids states from forbidding women from voting. Yes, that's [[ConfusingMultipleNegatives confusing]], but that's AmericanFederalism for you.[[/note]]. She listened to jazz, danced dances like [[DanceSensation the Foxtrot, the Tango, the Shimmy, the Black Bottom, the Baltimore Buzz, and the Charleston]], wore make-up for the first time since the 18th century, drank with the boys (in America, she was about as big an opponent of the 18th Amendment[[note]]Which prohibited alcohol.[[/note]] as she was a fan of the 19th), spoke in [[JiveTurkey slang]] and [[ClusterFBomb cusses]], and enjoyed various other delights TheRoaringTwenties had to offer. [[TwentiesBobHaircut Short hair]], [[ShesGotLegs short skirts]], [[PimpedOutDress short, loose & low-waisted evening gowns]], [[ZettaiRyouiki turned-up silk stockings]], [[PetitePride boyish figures]], and [[NiceHat swanky cloche hats]] were a must.

Their sexual liberty was a result of the feminist movements like women entering the workforce and women's rights to vote, and of women's growing hatred of the classic DoubleStandard; that promiscuous men were "studs," while promiscuous women were "whores." In their eyes, "sheiks" and "shebas" were equal, so they could be just as sexually free. Another factor was the then popular view of women as [[HouseWife house wives]] and mothers who should be subordinate to their men and preferably not leave the house.
