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



L bleakness of life for the working class Poverty homelessness dismal workhouses and all manner of infectious diseases were an everyday reality The poor were judged to be lazy and immoral paupers who refused to do hones I ve been waiting for someone to write this book for ears This book is not about Jack the Ripper it is about his five victims Written to remember five women who are usually just names in hundreds of books about the infamous serial killer this book is an attempt to tell their stories and to remind us that they were once babies daughters mothers or lovers who lived lives full of hardship and misfortunes The amount of research done by the author is imposing and she managed to recreate the lives of women who lived modest and ordinary lives in the Victorian times A big thank Attaboy, Sam! you to Hallie Rubenhold for her effort to shed light on the victims overshadowed by their most brutal and vicious murderer I m glad this book exists I m glad it spends next to no pagetime on Jack the Ripper himself because he s had than enough press over theears I m glad that someone is at least trying to put the victims at the front of the narrative which is where they should have been to begin with But A big part of Rubenhold s thesis in this book is that four of the five women were in fact not sex workers and that they had been unfairly classified as such due to Victorian prejudice against the working class That may well be true I haven t read far enough into Ripperology to confirm or deny it But the second part of the argument Rubenhold makes seems to be contingent on the first they were not prostitutes and therefore they are sympathetic complex and mu Hallie Rubenhold has come up with a fabulous piece of non fiction with this book examine one of England s most notorious unsolved serial killing sprees The Jack the Ripper murders rocked London and the world in 1888 though no one has ever been formally fingered as the killer With the euphoria of ueen Victoria s Diamond Jubilee still lingering a number of women were found slain in the streets of London in the summer and autumn of 1888 These women received some press mostly speculative about their means of living though few know anything about them Rubenhold seeks to change that by developing brief biographies of the five women and offering the reader some insight into the lives they lived before being found murdered While socio economic means surely shaped some of their lives one cannot simply lump all the victims as prostitutes and turn a blind eye Rubenhold seeks not only to personify them but to offer the reader something about their upbringing and means of living Some readers will be shocked to discover the information that Rubenhold is able to unearth while others will feel it only solidifies their already firmly held beliefs At a time when serial murder is anything but uncommon it is refreshing that someone has taken an interest in the victims rather than sensationalising the killer who basks in the limelight for eternity Well paced and fabulously detailed Hallie Rubenhold impresses the attentive reader with her research Recommended for those who love delving deeper into the murders of Victorian England as well as the reader who loves biographical pieces with a twistI came across this book uite by accident which can sometimes prove to be the best sort of reading experiences While I am no Jack the Ripper fanatic I have taken an interest in the murders and was eager to see what Rubenhold had to say She reiterates the contrast between England s upper classes who were still celebrating the long reign of their monarch with the lower classes who had little chance of ever seeing riches or notoriety The seedy underbelly of the streets of this European mega city are not lost on the reader who is given so much information As Rubenhold suggests many simply gloss over the names of the victims and want to learn about this killer though it is the lives of these women that really makes for something worth reading Some knew only a life of poverty and disease while one came from abroad and settled in a new location to begin afresh The biographies presented are thorough though not exhaustive by any means which gives the reader insight into their lives while also leaving much open to interpretation and perhaps further investigation I am not aware of anyone else who has taken the time to develop a detailed story of the women whose lives helped develop the notoriety that Jack the Ripper earned heightened makes this uniue piece all the exciting Detailed chapters flow easily and the five women have their lives contrasted and compared by the reader who has the time to do so Rubenhold does well to present her approach and does so in a concise and easy to comprehend manner A great biographical piece about the most unusual topic Do take some time to check it out You ll be pleasantly surprisedKudos Madam Rubenhold for this insightful piece I hope to find of Bealtaine; Tales of the Fae your writing soon to further my education even Lovehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons a different sort of Book Challenge.

Summary The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper

Own on their luck homeless without any means of making a living they turned to demon drink which of course created other problemsTheir problems were exacerbated by the fact that they were women in the Victorian age and even still today there is a double standard Women who slept with a man outside of marriage or drank or even didn t particularly want to work 12 hours a day in a factory for a pittance were thought of as licentious outcasts beyond the pale of society whereas if a man did those things which he often did the good wife was supposed to bring him back in the fold Women had the whole onus of being the responsible upright member of the family and to inculcate those virtues in the children of which a whole other book could be written about the draining debilitating effect having a child every ear did to the poor females of the eraThis is a wonderful book and an enlightening one I never really realized how horrible the Victorian age was especially for poor people You can read the whole of Dickens and not understand itWhat this author seeks to do in telling the story of these pitiful forgotten women is to restore their dignity and that she has achieved I think this book is absolutely wonderful It was everything I expected and I honestly had tremendous difficulty putting it down It is very clear that Rubenhold has done her research for this book and she masterfully keeps a fine balance between telling the story of each of the five women s lives and the pure solid research and creating the atmosphere of what life would have been like at that particular time I thought the women s stories were very moving They were written with style and individuality I almost felt like I actually knew the women I have always been interested in the victorian slums and parts in this book satisfies that and gives reference to other works to enable readers to further their reading It was rather interesting to read of the rights that women had especially in regards to their husbands in that era If a married woman hopped into another man s bed it was seen as adultery immediately but if a man did the same it wasn t so easy for the woman to prove The man would have had to have committed another crime alongside that in order to receive any payment or justice of any sense I really felt for these women and I cannot begin to imagine what life was like for them This book has given Polly Annie Elizabeth Kate and Mary Jane a voice and I think everybody needs to read this phenomenal book I don t really know what to say about this book It completely blew my mind I am gobsmacked that there have been no other authors who have described the lives of the five so realistically The focus until now has really been on the killer himself and the poor women have never been given a voice But here Hallie Rubenhold does just that she gives these women their voices back She brings their uniue raw and gritty stories to life she stands up for them she gives them back their dignity and above all she makes sure that readers know exactly what sort of women these tragic victims really were Their stories are fascinating their upbringings and early life heart wrenching and their menial occupations soul destroying They were never just prostitutes in fact only 2 of the 5 were even proven to be so and 4 out of 5 were alcoholics from a terribly Badtimes Stories (Historias de los malos tiempos) - Bernie Wrightson (Historias de los malos tiempos) - Bernie Wrightson (Obras Completas, young age this is of a link than prostitution ever was They were poor women excluding Mary Jane Kelly with large families that needed looking after who were usually mistreated and bullied by the men in their lives and sometimes went days without food or shelter The freuency that these women went through the workhouses was very upsetting and the demeaning effects of ueuing up for a bed with no guarantee of a place for the night must ve really broken themWhat I found extremely refreshing about this book was that the attackthe aftermath of the gruesome discovery of the bodies was bared touched upon It ran maybe half a page at the most For once there is a book that instead of glorifiying the disgusting way these women were killed focuses on their lives and the impact they had on the others around them Thankou for setting the record straight once and for all Hallie This is the tale of 1887 that most chose to forget Tatiana already wrote the perfect review for this book so a lot of my review is just going to be reiterating her pointsI thought The Five was genuinely hard to put down Rubenhold takes us back to the grim dingy streets of Victorian London and attempts to follow the life stories of each of the five confirmed victims of Jack the Ripper Polly Annie Elizabeth Catherine and Mary Jane women who have been largely buried by history forgotten in favour of obsessing over the mysterious Jack himself But each was a person with loves desires fears and flaws Rubenhold is eager for us not to forget thatThough this is nonfiction I felt very much transported back to the time and place in uestion The ugly visuals of Victorian London create a rich atmosphere and it was nice to see an author take some of the romance out of the era and focus on the struggles and genera.

The Five The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold is a 2019 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publication She had been brought into the world along the Street of Ink and it is to there riding on the column inches its illuminated plates its rumor and scandal that she would return a name in print The canonical five Ripper victimsMary Ann Polly NicholsAnnie ChapmanElizabeth StrideCatherine Kate Eddowes Mary Jane KellyAsk our friends relatives or colleagues what they know about the five women Jack the Ripper murdered and nearly all of them will say they were prostitutes However with one notable exception there is no concrete proof the other four victims ever identified themselves as such or worked in the sex trade What we are reminded of here is that these women were mothers sisters lovers and wives They had hard lives bad luck and little choice or opportunity to change their circumstances Their lives have been reduced to little conseuence partly because the sensationalism surrounding the Jack the Ripper legend and tons of unsubstantiated information but most of all because they were thought of as just prostitutes It has taken us a little over a century to finally restore humanity to these women to examine the mindset that promoted their sexualisation and diminished the compassion and respect due themThe author did a lot of deep digging and research to give the reader an in depth profile of each of these five women The laws of the day were stacked against them because th THE BOOK THAT RIPPEROLOGY HAS NEEDED FOR DECADES Ask ourself this uestion how much do ou know about the five women that Jack the Ripper killed in 1888 If A Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia you answered anything at all it was most likely that they were prostitutes You probably don t even know their names What if I toldou that the one thing Besser Php Programmieren you thoughtou knew might not even be true at all What if I told Călătoria unui fiu risipitor. Eseu romanţat asupra neizbânzii you that some of these women were actually mothers wives sisters and daughters Poor souls who fell on hard times and then got murdered There s so much we don t know about these women because nobody took the time find out Well it s time we begun we have figuratively stepped over the bodies of those he murdered and in some cases stopped to kick them as we walked past WHAT I LOVED Originality There is an ocean of books about Jack the Ripper and I dare venture a guess that 1010 aim at figuring out his identity In our eagerness to solve the mystery we have completely forgotten the victims of his crimes Those poor women have become nothing than footnotes in the myth of Jack the Ripper Making them the stars of the show is the most original approach to Jack the Ripper I have even seen and uite frankly this was long overdueNew information I ll admit before this book I was one of the people who couldn t even really name these women And I also bought the common belief of them being prostitutes This book gave me so much new information about these women I had one aha moment after the other revelation upon revelation These women really lived Still we only remember them for their deathsLives I LOVED that Rubenhold didn t dedicate any time to describing the murders of these women Because that s all they ve been for so long murder victims This book is solely about their lives how they lived and the people they left behind Want to know about the grizzliness of their deaths There are a thousand other booksou can turn to for thatPerspective Why do we remember these women as prostitutes even if that was not what they were Well Rubenhold gives and excellent answer to that uestion It is all about the attitudes towards down on their luck women in the Victorian era At that time there was legally little difference between being homeless and being a prostitute as a woman It is time we left behind the morality of the Victorian eraVindication These women were little than numbers in a seuence With this book they have gotten their lives and their identities back Rubenhold takes the first steps in vindicating them and righting a wrong that has dominated for than 130 Things for the Surgeon years This is an eye opening and revelatory history of the real lives of the women killed by the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper One of the most astounding facts presented is that all of the women were killed while in a reclining position that along with no one hearing anything and statistics showing that thousands of destitute women slept rough every night in London leads the author to the conclusion that all of the women were killed while sleeping not in the performance of a sex act In fact these women could not be termed prostitutes except for Mary Jane Kelly They have been linked as such for all theears since 1888 when the first murder occurred Labeled by the Victorian press in order to sell newspapers they have been libeled through the ages as trash so we don t need to worry about what happened to them Indeed the murderer has become a sort of folk hero and treated with a smile and a wink All of the women suffered tremendously in this life and have been vilified in death They were all variously wives daughters mothers sisters and friends The Five Podcast FOX News Radio The Five Premium Podcast Subscriptions All
