Yes yes yes. We all know Jack the Ripper. He's creepy, he's evil, he may have been a Vampire, and he's way too overdone. We are sick of talking about him. So, instead, we are going to talk about his victims who far too often appear as footnotes in an enigmatic chapter of history. In the first of a two part episode, Emily tells Karamia about sex working in Victorian England and what it was actually like for the women who were to become his victims. Be prepared for some rants about patriarchy, slut-shaming, misogyny, and all the usual suspects that come along with Victorian England. Channel your inner Dickens' character, spice yourself some cider, and get ready for our spookiest of Harlots yet: Part 1!
