Duality Within Identity

Lottie Scrase Dickins

Men in Lipstick is an exploration into the notion of current societal gender constructs and how some things are still, even in 21st century western culture, only deemed socially acceptable for one gender. My intention in creating this 200 page book, was to provide an opportunity for men and women to be open minded about what it is to be ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ and how certain tools, such as lipstick, can allow a person to reveal an identity that may or may not be repressed due to certain conforms, surrounding gender, that society places upon us.
