Society veiws


Recommended Posts


Isn't it funny how views of society haven't changed as much as we'd like since Victorian times.

In 1888 a series of crimes shocked and horrified the world. The remaining evidence, bars, clubs, street tours, even drinks and foods named after the perpetrator.

Of course jack the ripper a name we all know, his victims all but forgotten. Innocent victims miscalled prostitutes,why, society wanted to avoid a panic within the higher classes.

These women had names and their only crime, they were unfortunate enough to live in horrific slums. Mary Ann 'Polly' Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, Mary Jane Kelly, with the exception of one none of them were prostitutes, they just happened to live in the worst slums of London, the one that was, no evidence was shown she was plying her trade on that horrific night and even if she was she was still a victim

I say these are the names that should be remembered, not that of an unknown assailant.

And today, though things have improved, society still seems to put men higher than women. They are not, we are all equal.
