    Abstract

    Female identity is presented in various contexts in real life situations and in cinema both able to explore the individual in terms of categorizing women figures. Through adolescence and adulthood the female identity is altered and influenced by class, social status, ethnicity, beauty, media and relationships. The act of becoming the individual is through the single-minded interpretation of the self. This exploration is introduced with the challenge of the individual and then the group. Through fear of mass against minority the individual is required to develop strength in their personal characteristics, which are assessed in social experiences of conformity.
