Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, was an icon in the flapper movement of the 1920's; dubbed by many as the 'first american flapper.' In direct correlation to this, she became a leader of the feminist movement, fighting for the freedom of women and they're right to express themselves and enjoy their lives to the fullest.

THE LOOK: Flappers were typically young, attractive ladies. They would cut their hair short, styling it in a bob or a shingle fashion, and shorten the hemlines of their dresses to their knees. To adopt more of a slightly masculine or "garçonne" look, flappers would bind their chests and wear straight, shapeless dresses. (Rachel SAQ)

One of the many bold stylistic statements made by flappers was the form fitting, controversial one-piece swim suits. This was coupled with a swim cap designed to be worn best with bobbed hair. (Sarah Easson)

THE NAME: There are many speculations on the etymology of the word "flapper". Some believe that the word originated from the sound that a flapper's galoshes would make as she walked, as she refused to buckle them up properly. Others believed that the word was of metaphorical origin, from a bird learning how to take flight, and some believed the word had originally been used to refer to a promiscuous woman. (Rachel SAQ)

THE ATTITUDE: Flappers had a very free-spirited attitude, defying all of the traditional Victorian expectations and roles imposed upon them. Giddy and reckless, flappers would smoke, drive cars – which would go against the feminine roles – and frequent speakeasies and jazz clubs. (Rachel SAQ)

THE REPUTATION: Perception of flappers can be categorized into two perspectives. On one hand, flappers were seen as promiscuous & immoral, typically by those of the older generation, who followed Victorian traditions of conservative dress and mannerisms. Some even believed that flappers shouldn’t have been granted the right to vote. Conversely, flappers were also perceived as an embodiment of feminism and breaking away from societal expectations of Victorian female roles. (Rachel SAQ)
