Well, for starters, the ladies had their own separate section of shops. They did business alone. Ladies bought clothing, had it delivered to their houses, took it to the stores, and returned it with the sales clerk. Many women stayed in the same rooms until their husband or a friend arrived. That was another good thing. No one could take away their clothes.
Today, the same shopping practices continue, but more women participate. That’s why I like this story about Women’s History Month: The women of the 1920s are the first to wear their period clothes to the store. (Thanks, America!) Here’s how it works. At the beginning of March, an organization called Women’s History Month held an event, featuring an interview with Margaret Atwood.

The first was that it reminded us how incredibly different this country was from the world a century ago. Even when we did things differently, we still looked, acted and dressed the same way—our clothes were a good indication that.

“The protesters were told to stop their demonstration. They refused to obey. At that point police tried to disperse the crowd with tear gas. Several people were hit by scalding water hoses. In total the police used more than 80 truncheons.”
