The 1970's was an era of cultural change. Think back to the sexual revolution, the women's movement, and the gay liberation movement, which all rose to the forefront of society and could no longer be ignored. The fashions of the day expressed the changing mores. 

If you were slow to adapt, you could express that feeling in a more traditional wardrobe. If you were ready to embrace the change and appreciated the opportunity to express yourself, your clothing choices might have been more liberal.

There were also upheavals in our political views and our assessment of the government in the '70s. However, in this quiz, we focus on daily life during that changing decade. From the slang you spoke to the fads you tried, this quiz will ask you how you saw yourself back then. There will be questions about what your favorite movies were, the music you listened to, the food on your table and other insightful questions. 

Your answers will help us gain a better picture of the style of dress you would be found in during disco-ball-blinding years. Go ahead, give it a try. Start the quiz and let us guess which crazy '70s fashion item you used to wear.
