About Hallie Rubenhold: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper

Polly, Annie, Elizabeth, Catherine and Mary-Jane are famous for the same thing, though they never met.

They came from Fleet Street, Knightsbridge, Wolverhampton, Sweden and Wales. They wrote ballads, ran coffee houses, lived on country estates, they breathed ink-dust from printing presses and escaped people-traffickers.

What they had in common was the year of their murders: 1888. The person responsible was never identified, but ‘Jack the Ripper’, the character created by the press to fill that gap, has become far more famous than any of these five women.

Historian Hallie Rubenhold finally sets the record straight in her extraordinary new book.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hallie Rubenhold: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
