Women's Identities morphed in the Roaring Twenties. Women gain the right to vote and believe that their role in society is incredibly important and indispensable. Some women, known as "Flappers", took complete freedom in the way they conducted themselves socially and sexually, just as men would. They joined the workforce in large numbers and contributed to the prosperity of the United States. Later on, during World War II, women took over the jobs of their husbands and other men while they were off fighting, keeping the country up and running.
