The word "veiled" to me means hidden, misleading or deceptive, though not necessarily in a malicious way. I found some old fashion magazines from the 1930's, and the image of the woman holding up a mask was on the cover of one of these old magazines-and that image struck me as a personification of the word.

I think that we as women have been conditioned to "present" ourselves in a certain way, and pretend to be who we aren't for at least a century now just to get along in life. Sometimes one needs to hide behind a veil for self preservation.
