The Ripper Myth from Bad Women
Listen now
Presenting a sneak peek of Pushkin's new podcast, Bad Women: The Ripper Retold. In 1888, five female prostitutes were brutally murdered in a London slum-- attacks so violent the killer earned a nickname: Jack the Ripper. For centuries, we have assumed these women were indeed “Bad Women,” ...but what if everything we know about them is wrong? Historian Hallie Rubenhold has uncovered the true stories of the Ripper’s victims. They all struggled against the misogyny that thrived in Victorian England, until they found themselves in the path of one of the most vicious killers in history. Bad Women is a must-listen, rich in historical detail and suspenseful enough to satisfy any true crime fan.  You can hear more episodes of Bad Women at: Learn more about your ad-choices at
