Jazzs influence on America could be most aptly described as a positive for cultural diversion for free thinking and for new ideals This new genre of sound was not only a new type of entertainment but also a genuine American lifestyle During the mid to late 1910s the majority of the population was living in the urban areas of the United States rather than the rural areas This in effect resulted in much ethnic diversity and tolerance since there were so many cultures living in such relatively small community space Over time this meshing of cultures and peoples started a social renaissance that made the African American culture as well as other minorities very popular at the time The birth of jazz did not actually start in the urban areas as one would think It started in the rural areas of Louisiana but quickly moved to the large cities like New Orleans over a short period of time In the rural areas jazz was first considered to be just African American folk music However as the music buzz progressed to the cities it became mainstream for all races The white city goers specifically women were attracted to the lifestyle of jazz because it spoke the message of freedom of expression during a time where women were considered a social minority The jazz age was the epitome of freethinking in the 20th century and it gave oppressed women oppressed in that they still were not entitled to all constitutional rights an outlet for rebellion Womens movements like the Womens Liberation Movement were directly influenced by the expressionism of jazz music The two most groundbreaking accomplishments of the WLM were the ratifications of the 18th and 19th Amendments Women were also the primary aggressors of Prohibition and the Suffrage Movement With the empowerment of women at an all time high businesses took heed and established women as a target market knowing that they were now equal
