Today’s Cal-Rec featured a story about a local artist bashed by school board member in Newport Vermont. The artist, Maria Lacroix painted a female nude with multiple breasts, arms and bellys. The school board member is concerned about children not understanding the painting and, in fact, feeling sexually harassed by the painting. The school board member called it obscene. It’s actually an interesting perspective on the female body image in the context of a female-hating culture.
From poem “Käthe Kollwitz” by Muriel Rukeyser.
“What would happen if one woman told the truth about
The world would split open”
I will tell you what’s obscene:
