Sexual identity, as a culture based issue, can be regarded as a founding stone for many social inequalities. People (no matter men or women) have to borrow some features of the opposite sex in order to get along with some imposed situations of its surroundings, and wear the mask of another sex in order to solve some of its problems. This, however, may establish those features in the mind of the person, and change its sex typing in the long run. Androgyny takes place when such masks represent the male and female essence at the same time. This article aims to find out when the (female) characters of films tend to make use of Androgyny as a mask, and how they turn to androgenic characters. This article has made use of the theoretical framework of Sandra Bem named Psychological Androgyny, together with Goffman's Dramaturgical Analysis. We have also attempted to study two films named "The Blue Scarf" (1994) and "Transit Cafe" (2004), to show the impacts of the society in forming a psychological androgyny in the sexuality of female characters in these films. The results show that these women have resorted making use of the androgenic mask in order to get their basic social rights, and have gradually turned to androgenic characters.
