In the 1920s and 1930s, with Western modernization and increased education, Taiwanese women gradually embarked on a different way of life. They unbound their feet, went to school, worked, and enjoyed various modern leisure activities after work. The awakening and liberation of these modern women allowed them to have an independent youth with earnings from their own jobs. In Dadaocheng, a bustling commercial area at the time, it became a gathering place for various fashionable consumption.

On the streets of Taipei’s Dadaocheng, particularly in the Taiping neighborhood, young women with the latest permed hair could be seen everywhere. This exhibition showcases the vibrant lifestyle of these modern women, reflecting their autonomy and liberation during that era.
