This theme actress Shereen Zumout has revisited in this My.Kali’s issue photoshoot, which celebrates a more fluid interpretation of gender in its reimagining of scenes from the 1964 Egyptian cinema classic For Men Only. Zoumot is cast variously as Elham (played by Soad Hosny in the film) and Salwa (played by Nadi Lutfi modeled here by Marwa Tarawneh), two female engineers employed by an oil company in Cairo. Prevented from working at new oil wells in the desert because of their gender, the two women dress as men and head out to the desert to work alongside their male colleagues in disguise.
