“Young women wanted to spend their youth enjoying their life and freedom rather than just staying at home and waiting for a man to marry them... They wanted to be men's social equals and were faced with the difficult realization of the larger goals of feminism: individuality, full political participation, economic independence, and 'sex rights’. They wanted to be treated like men and go smoking and drinking.” -NOTES ON A FLAPPER
