Female Pilot of the US Women's Air Force Service, 1943. The women who served as Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) flew military aircraft during non-combat missions throughout the United States' involvement in World War II.
In the 1920s, many Americans found the flapper incredibly threatening. Flappers represented a new moral order. Although they were the daughters of the middle class, they flouted middle-class values. They shrugged off their chaperones. Worse still, they danced suggestively and openly flirted with boys. Flappers prized style over substance, novelty over tradition, and pleasure over virtue.
