The 5 - Hallie Rubenhold's possible strawman

I was listening to a Cautionary Tales bonus episode about a new book focusing on the victims of Jack the Ripper, and I had the sense of being patronized like a primary school student. It all just seemed like a strawman: No one had ever told the story of the victims because sexism, and, the 5 canonical victims weren’t all sex workers but we’re identified as such… because sexism.

Sure enough a Google of the matter and a Guardian article alleging the author was being trolled was far easier to find than a JTR forum post going through, yes, you picked it, her claims were either bogus or exaggerated.


Would love if Quillete could reach out to an expert in the field and write an article on this.
