Jack The Ripper
Another way the media portrayed the murders was through a feminist lens. They made the crimes have less of a magnitude because these women were prostitutes. They focused more on the fact that these women were prostitutes, which was a popular career at the time, than focusing on the facts that these women were brutally mutilated. The media also pushed the fact that if you become a prostitute you'll be murdered just like these women.
There is a great deal of Feminist criticism surrounding these murders. Some people of that time period believed that because his victims were prostitutes, the crimes weren't such an awful thing. Today, people even honor Jack The Ripper by celebrating anniversary of the days he killed. Through this critical lens the media glamorizes being a murder and killing prostitutes.
