Flapper Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

A 1922 article from THE OUTLOOK in which an anonymous flapper offers to define this new breed of woman and begs the parents of the world to lend an understanding ear:

"...But then there are many degrees of a flapper. There is the semi-flapper; the flapper; the super-flapper. Each of these three main general divisions has its degrees of variation. I might possibly be placed somewhere in the middle of the first class".

Nothing is known about the interesting young woman who penned these words some eighty-five years ago, however her sincere explanation as to the nature of all matters flapper has survived and is at this time one of the most often downloaded flapper essays on the internet. Her name was Ellen Welles Page and her three column rant was intended to serve as a diplomatic treaty between her era's hypocritical Victorian parents and their seemingly libertine daughters. It is a wonderful read.
