Essay Topic

In my essay, I wanted to focus on the era of the twenties. The focus would be on culture, including the music, clothing, and dance, and how these changing aspects of culture changed the attitudes of the men and women of this era. The women took on new roles, including the “right to vote with the Nineteenth Amendment”(HIST, 379). This is when Prohibition was put into effect, and I wanted to look into how these changed attitudes contributed to the rise of alcohol consumption in this era and what led to the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. I believe that the Prohibition laws were ineffective and promoted more drinking, because in this era, people were more likely to go against the grain with their new attitude of freedom and change.
