Narrative on 1920s and 1930s era continuity and change.

During the 1920's and 30's, their were may aspects of change and continuity. First and foremost, economics with business owners and industrialists had changed greatly, resulting in a change from good to bad. During the 20's, their were many new inventions that had helped the average american live and learn better solving their needs. The american industry had surged, and productivity increased as the economy strengthened. But during the 30’s, many workers had gotten fired and laid off from their jobs. People had become poor and couldn't support their families and keep their homes, and product demand had gone down. As the government had chosen not to be involved with businesses and industrialists in the 1920's, they had been left alone without control. But in the 30's, they had begun to get involved with the new deal, and taking actions to improve the lives families and make the businesses soar. The home life of many women was in a decline from the 1920's to the 30's-the 20's being an amazing time for women, prospering with a new generation and daring clothes and pursuing many aspects that broke tradition. Women had rights to have the same job as men, as many believed in equality. But this had all gone down when the 30's hit, the women rights enthusiasm dying down, and everyone had believed that women belong in a home, having them stealing men's jobs and not being able to support their families like men do. Women had struggled for the gain and equality during this era. The continuity of the women had still never changed, them always still fighting for rights. The leisure time of many american's had partial continuity throughout the 20's to the 30's. The twenties was the time of the Harlem renaissance, where African american culture was expressed, and new forms of art and music were created. This had shaped the culture for these people, and had a huge cultural reborn and happiness for the African Americans. This had mostly stayed the same for the 30's, and had still brought upon the lighthearted jazz and speakeasy clubs to relieve stress and turn away from racial prejudice.The Harlem renaissance light although had been dimmed, but had still gone to the goodness of the renaissance they once had. Overall, the 1920's and 30's was a time of continuity and change of all american's everywhere.
