Essay Topic

For my essay topic, I chose the Roaring Twenties. Throughout my essay, I will be focusing primarily on the technology that the twenties consisted of, their culture throughout this time frame, and how women’s role in society changed. One of the main technological innovations that the twenties experienced was the development of the assembly line, which allowed sped up in production. In addition, the Roaring Twenties experienced “a dramatic expansion of popular culture” (Schultz, 376). This era experienced a growth in movies, music, and sports. Women also experienced a more active role in society. The right to vote with the Nineteenth Amendment became the stepping stone for many feminists and activists to promote women’s rights. Women became known as “the new women” with their political success and they even began to dress differently.
