The effect of prohibition

Initially, prohibition was put in place with the aim of reducing violence by prohibiting the sale of alcohol. However, we see that it didn't work at all: people are fighting, they all hold a glass and we see the waiters serving alcohol with the bottles in the background.

The place of women

in the speakeasy, the women are dancers, they dance to entertain the men. other women are present but do not have a better role: they seem to be prostitutes. in conclusion, the woman is given much inferior to the man (woman object) in the speakeasy.
