Celebrate Suffragettes not serial killers
Tragically the "museum" is still running, as it proved impossible to have their planning permission revoked due to a legal loophole.
So the campaign against it switched tack and decided to out do the poor taste exhibit by opening up the "Women's History Museum" that we'd all been promised in the first place.
First up campaigners held big weekly demonstrations outside the museum
Next we fundraised and opened up our own museum right around the corner
"East End Women, the real story"
Next we fundraised and bought the billboard across the road from the Ripper exibit announcing "Don't go to the Jack the Ripper museum, come to the East End women's museum instead"
After a long stay at the original location, the East End Women's museum is now on tour. And we replaced the billboard across the road from the Ripper museum with panels from the Women's History museum too.
