The social structures that once enabled male artists to exploit and abuse women must be cast into the past. But castigating their work to the scrapheap is an act of cultural suicide.
Laws around the world continue to fail victims of rape and sexual abuse. It is time this, too, changed.
Not all women have the capacity, or freedom, to speak out about their experiences of sexual violence – be it in the workplace or at home.
