Ready to Roar
During Prohibition, the emergence of speakeasies gave rise to “flappers,” young women who redefined social expectations through fashion. These women distanced themselves from buttoned-up Victorian social norms and embraced progressive views on fashion, sexuality and so-called vices. Now on exhibition, is “Ready to Roar,” at The Mob Museum, which displays Prohibition-Era fashion and culture of the 1920s and early 1930s and illustrates the indelible impact the Prohibition Era had on not only women’s fashions, but also their social, political and economic freedoms. Exhibition will be on view until February, 2017.
