A Hidden History of Women in the East End: The Alternative Jack the Ripper Tour 2020 dates

Jan 28, 2020

Recently there has been much interest in the five women killed in east London just over 130 years ago. In autumn of 2017 we launched our alternative tour to look at the lives of these 5 women and the issues today having experience of working with women on the same streets for nearly 25 years.
Join us to hear the untold story of Jack the Ripper’s victims. In this hidden history tour  we celebrate the strength of women led to sell sex for survival, not a serial killer. 
Visiting the streets where the women lived, we will explore what we know about their lives and commemorate their deaths. Alongside the historic, you’ll hear the stories of women still affected by sexual exploitation in the area today and how you can take action on these issues.
