So there’s an historian suggesting that the victims of Jack the Ripper weren’t in fact regular prostitutes. Fair enough and why not, both fun and informative to chew over the old evidence and see if minds should be changed. Then we’ve got those parallels that people try to draw with the present. For what would be a right on and woke column about such without referring to modern day murders of sex workers?
Every GCSE student knows that sources can be open to interpretation and that there will always be particular groups invested in keeping those interpretations fixed.
