Tell me about the Roaring Twenties.

The Roaring Twenties

The 1919 end of World War I, plus the 1920 women's right to vote, brought in a new prosperity and giddiness. In addition, Prohibition brought in illegal alcohol, trade, Gangsters and drinking establishments called Speakeasies. Young women, Flappers, bared their legs and arms, shocking their elders. Other shockers were applying makeup in public, short "bob" haircuts, and going around with men of questionable character.
