Notes on chapter 2: Self-Representation: Dandyism and Androgyny
- I think one of the primary points of interest that draw me to the work and life of Romaine is that as a young female in contemporary society I can identify with the search for a sense of self. I am intrigued and inspired by her journey of self-actualization and her path to finding her place in a society in which she did not fit the status quo.
- "Romaine came to realize that gender was essentially a public performance and that clothing has the ability to mark and mask the individual." Pg 53.
