Many people’s home life got messed up. Especially the women. But, the wealthy people of America’s home life did not change. The women would go out all the time in the Twenties and had fun dancing and being flappers. In the Thirties, many women have to stay home and take care of the family. They also would have to cook. But, if the family no longer had a home they had to live in Hoovervilles and stand in line at soup kitchens. Another group that their home life was affected by the Great Depression were the African Americans. Their home life was already bad in the South.They had to live on the farmers, which they had a tough time doing. But, during the Great Depression it got worse. Blacks had to live in cramped apartments and still faced discrimination in the North.
