Abstract:
Dietrich, like Madonna, has been called gender-bending and androgynous, but Dietrich's on- and off-screen fluidity of gender identity, as reflected in her adoption of the "double drag," upsets the traditional dichotomy encoded more generally as that of male or female and more particularly as that of the butch or femme.
