1. A. Briefly describe ONE specific historical change in US society in the 1920s. The 1920s were a period of significant social change. The advent of a consumer-oriented economy and mass culture, which helped to bring about a "revolution in values and etiquette," became the most visible signs of change. During the 1920s, sexual mores, gender norms, hair styles, and clothes all underwent major changes. These reforms were seen by many Americans as an emancipation from the country's Victorian history. B. Briefly describe a second specific historical change in US society in the 1920s. The motor industry was the driving force behind America's phenomenal economic success in the 1920s. Around 1920 and 1929, the number of automobiles on the road nearly tripled, boosting the demand of steel, rubber, plate glass, and other components used in automotive construction. The two main innovations that enabled this industry's growth were standardization and mass manufacturing, both of which were pioneered by Henry Ford. C. Briefly describe ONE specific historical reaction to ONE of the changes you discussed in A or B.
