On 21 September 2018, Joshua Feuerstein, an American evangelical internet personality who is perhaps best known for stirring up controversy over Starbucks Christmas cups, shared a photograph to his Facebook page purportedly showing a nude model walking the runway with four young girls and claimed that the image documented the "liberal left" attempting to "normalize pedophilia":
The viral photograph included in Feurenstein's post was taken at the Goethe Institute in 2017, while a video taken from a separate performance (which can be viewed here) and showing a young child and her mother interacting with Schwartz' body was taken at the Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo.
Picasso came into his own as an important artist during the first decade of the 20th century. He arrived in Paris from Spain around the turn of the century as a young, ambitious painter out to make a name for himself. For several years he alternated between living and working in Barcelona, Madrid and the Spanish countryside, and made frequent trips to Paris.
Although not well known to the general public prior to 1906, Cézanne's reputation was highly regarded in avant-garde circles, as evidenced by Ambroise Vollard's interest in showing and collecting his work, and by Leo Stein's interest. Picasso was familiar with much of Cézanne's work that he saw at Vollard's gallery and at the Stein's. After Cézanne died in 1906, his paintings were exhibited in Paris in a large scale museum-like retrospective in September 1907. The 1907 Cézanne retrospective at the Salon d'Automne greatly impacted the direction that the avant-garde in Paris took, lending credence to his position as one of the most influential artists of the 19th century and to the advent of Cubism. The 1907 Cézanne exhibition was enormously influential in establishing Cézanne as an important painter whose ideas were particularly resonant especially to young artists in Paris.
The painting is prominently featured in the 1993 Steve Martin play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, about a fictional meeting of the young Picasso and Albert Einstein in a Paris cafe, and in the 2018 season of the television series Genius, which focuses on Picasso's life and work.
-- In Alabama, Jonathan Vance, 24, of Auburn was sentenced to 18 years in prison in April after he admitted sending threatening e-mails on Facebook and MySpace extorting nude photos from more than 50 young women in Alabama, Pennsylvania and Missouri.
"It's the go-to slur of any man to a woman, no matter what age," said Laura, who has used a different name to protect her identity. "I'm quite outspoken and I've not got a problem with saying how it is. It's almost like a defence mechanism that young boys have got. If you brush them off, they're like, 'you're a sl*g anyway'.
According to a recent survey by Girl Guiding UK, girls in Wales are more likely to feel unsafe at school compared to those in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and 19% of girls and young women aged 11-16 in Wales say fear of sexual harassment holds them back at school compared to 18% in England, 12% in Scotland and 11% in Northern Ireland.
Since the pandemic, 29% of girls and young women in Wales believe gender equality has got worse, according to the Girl Guiding UK survey, and one Welsh school we spoke to has seen a rise in sexual assault and sexual harassment cases since Covid. Sian Humphries is the pastoral leader at Cefn Saeson, a mixed comprehensive school in Neath Port Talbot. She said the impact of Covid had caused issues at the school: "We saw a rise in sexually inappropriate behaviour after Covid and I think part of the reason is because [pupils] were on their own a lot and they didn't get the same level of PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) education they would normally have at school.
Laura has a son in primary school and said she was already teaching him the importance of consent, not letting him hug or even high five his peers without permission. Since September this year, relationships and sexuality education is being taught across primary schools in Wales and children as young as three will be taught about relationships and identity, sexual health and wellbeing and empowerment, safety and respect. You can read more about this here.
"It was bad when I was in school but it has got so much worse. From what I'm hearing from my young people at the moment in schools, especially, is that it's not so much the boys, it's the teachers. The whole uniform policy that is going on at the moment, girls can't do anything about it. They are told they have to bend over so they can see if they can see up your skirt. If you can see up your skirt than you have to go home.
On PSHE lessons in Wales, Mr Evans added: "Health and wellbeing is now one of the areas of learning in the new curriculum which is being introduced slowly into schools in Wales. Of course, there was PSHE before it. It's for the schools now to take on board surveys like this and make sure that they actually learn from them and adapt those types of lessons to make sure they get a greater understanding of the issues affecting young girls and young women in schools today."
