Originally writing for the FORREST PARK REVIEW, Flapper advocate Myrtle Heilman (1895 - 1973) opined that the flapper was the one and only topic of the day worth thinking about:
"And the flapper isn't anything new...Eve was a flapper, dear old Cleopatra was a flapper and Joan of Arc was a flapper. Oh yes she was! She was pure and divine, and so is our feminine generation, but Joan, the little dear, knew what she wanted to do. She wanted to wear armor and ride a charging steed as much as any girl nowadays wants to wear knickers and ride in a flashy roadster. She wanted to lead an army of men, and she did it. She was a flapper."
