Samenvatting

QUOTE “A recent study found there is no male and a female brain, only individual brains. Another study found the brain to be influenced by social factors more than ever expected. Generation Z and Generation Y perceive gender different from generations before, less fixed and rather fluid. Gender stereotypes are being dismantled by these generations, among others due to changed power relations between men and women. Critics to traditional gender lines state they limit people. Gender-neutral fashion dismantles the notions of masculinity and femininity and enables every person to identify with what gender they wish to do.” RESEARCH QUESTION What is the role of gender in dress?
