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.

* Anna May Wong Creator/AnnaMayWong in the 1920s deliberately cultivated a flapper image in order to show that hope she would be less typecast as a was both American ''and'' Chinese. She's credited with helping de-mystify Chinese-Americans to the general public. While it didn't do her much favours in terms of what roles she got - Hollywood being reluctant to cast an Asian actress in anything other than DragonLady or a demure ProperLady. Unfortunately, it parts - she did not work.

The popular image of the flapper we know of dates back to the late 1920s. In fact, the concept [[OlderThanTheyThink dates way back at least in the 1910s]]. While the word ''flapper'' stuck in every dictionary as early as TheGayNineties, the flapper girl started to evolve during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and the Prohibition era. Contrary to popular imagery, flappers did not always wore sleek bobs, fringed dresses and feathered headbands. Earlier flappers had that loose silhouette, yet wore wide-brimmed hats and longer, narrower skirts. But as the decade progressed, and with the help of prominent women like UsefulNotes/CocoChanel, hats became tighter and narrower, and skirts became shorter, and the silhouette more streamlined, like the image you see above.
