The Roaring 20's brought on a lot of changes in the United States.
 Most people saw a 22% growth in their paychecks.
 It was illegal to consume or make alcohol in the United States due to Prohibition.

 And with the passing of the 19th Amendment women were given the right to vote. 

This new era brought on a new type of woman called a  "flapper".
 She danced, drank, smoked and voted. 
She cut her hair, she tanned her skin, she wore make-up, and partied until dawn.
She was sexually liberated.  People started thinking that women 
were sexual beings with human impulses and desires, 
and restraining these impulses was self-destructive.

Ruth Brown Snyder let go of all her inhibitions but still managed to self destruct.

 you most likely have never heard of.
