Artist's Description

This is a story within a story – it’s the story of Jack the Ripper mutilating and killing prostitutes and other serial (women) killers like him but also the story of feminism. There’s still a lot of fear and hate about and people are still boxing women in – from the models in the magazines (all looking pretty and ever so sexy) to women being told they cannot have abortions in the States… there’s still a lot of work to do and some of it is realising that there is still a lot of work to do.

I am not saying no achievements have been made, but sometimes I wonder how deep they go and how many of the preconceptions and misconceptions of women seem to just have received different, more acceptable labels.
