Women also were playing a larger role in society as they had the right to vote. The film industry in Hollywood was in full swing and mobster activities, related to gambling and prohibition. The NY Stock market was also moving higher and higher. By the end of the Twenties, a Stock Market crash ended the economic boom. Hard times in the form of a depression would soon be a huge economic factor for many Americans. Many nations in Europe also felt the pain of a sour US economy.
