15. I am guessing that these girls were sexually exploited.

There is one painting "During dance classes, Madame Cardenal" was the mother of one of the dancers and from this painting you can see her, reading a newspaper and oblivious of the men who were "observing" the rehearsal. I believe Degas was "outing" this woman for her disregard of her own child, by putting her name on the painting and making her infamous forever.
