Julia's Scarlet Anti-Sex Waist Sash

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

This represents a citizen’s devotion to Party doctrine and Party cause. A symbol of chastity in the book, Julia’s sash actually represents her duality. A devout Party member by appearance, Julia uses the sash to disguise her true actions (she has sex all the time).
