How far did US society change in the 1920s?

The 1920s are often called the Roaring Twenties. The name suggests a time of riotous fun, loud music and wild enjoyment when everyone was having a good time. There is no doubt that this was a time of turmoil for many Americans. For those who joined in with 'the party' it was a time of liberation and rebellion against traditional values. For those who did not, it was a time of anxiety and worry. For them the changes taking place were proof that the USA was going down the drain and needed rescuing. All this combined to make the 1920s a decade of contrasts. The image shows one of the symbols of the Roaring Twenties the 'Flappers'.
