almost 10 years ago, Maryam Momeni asked a question
Women dressed as men
There is a large number of photographs, from the late 19th-century into the early two decades of the 20th, of women that have marginal naming on photos saying "prostitutes". Others do not have that naming on the photos, but later cataloguers have named them thus. Among them are a considerable number of women dressed as men. Dressing up as young men was probably thought of as a point of attraction (not necessarily sexual availability) both to other men but also to women. Dressing up for photographs was very common in the period, including as European women and men. What was the grammar of dressing up as men in Qajar Iran?
