Jack the Ripper’s victims were prostitutes murdered while selling sex on the streets of Whitechapel - that’s what historian Hallie Rubenhold thought when she started researching the crimes. She was wrong.  

As she looked into the case, she discovered much of the familiar Ripper story is totally false. But by challenging that myth and trying to tell the true stories of the murdered women, Hallie attracted a storm of criticism.
