The 1930s was a decade of global economic and political crisis that culminated in World War II. The Great Depression had traumatic social effects worldwide, leading to widespread poverty and unemployment. The Dust Bowl in the United States exacerbated the scarcity of wealth. U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt introduced a program of social reforms and stimulus plans called the New Deal in response to the crisis. Germany adopted an aggressive foreign policy, invading Poland in 1939 and starting World War II. The decade saw the rise of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP as the country's sole legal party in 1933, leading to the imposition of laws that discriminated against Jews and other ethnic minorities. Many technological advances occurred in the 1930s, including the advent of sound in films, the widespread use of man-made fibers, and synthetic nylon stockings. Social realism became an important art movement during the Great Depression in the United States. The most popular music of the decade was swing. The most characteristic North American fashion trend from the 1930s to 1945 was attention at the shoulder, with butterfly sleeves and exaggerated shoulder pads for both men and women by the 1940s. The period also saw the first widespread use of the zipper.
