The Gender Veil from Egyptian Identity: The Findings of an Artist
The notion of gender feels more present as a social phenomenon, having more freedom and autonomy on the part of the
people, allowing them to decide their identities for themselves and is determined by innumerable aspects. Ways of dressing,
styling hair and/or makeup, and behavior are just some ways we identify gender, where sex is a concrete and biological
element, one proven at birth. An individual cannot easily manipulate something biological, but can change social constructs
that compartmentalize gender.
