A "stag" (partner-less guys): Warren McIntyre, a popular Yale undergrad.
Other members of this social circle: Jim Strain and Ethel Demorest, who have been secretly engaged for years
Genevieve Ormonde and Roberta Dillon: towns beautiful girls, who are practically famous with the young men of their generation…they're party girls that visit their male friends at college back East for big football games and dances.
Last : Marjorie Harvey, Warren's main girl.
Grew up across the street from each other
Warren's been in love with Marjorie for ages.
However, she's not entirely sure about him – she's fond of Warren, but can't help but hang around with other guys when he's away.
In "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," we are seeing a new issue come about: what do women expect from women? Instead of: what do men expect from women?
This story asks you to evaluate and challenge traditional expectations of what it means to be a woman and be feminine in comparison to a new kind of woman that exploded into life in the post-Victorian era (after 1901).
Fitzgerald asks you to question whether or not we should create clear-cut models for being feminine and for what women should be like.
