For many young women, the 1920s felt like a promise of liberty; a decade when they dared to shorten their skirts, crop their hair, smoke cigarettes in public and claim new sexual freedoms. From this generation of women 'hell-bent on having their own way', Judith Maxwell has chosen to profile six that exemplify the spirit of the 1920s: Lady Diana Cooper, Nancy Cunard, Tallulah Bankhead, Zelda Fitzgerald, Josephine Baker and Tamara de Lempicka.
