East End women's museum to rival Ripper attraction

A new exhibition celebrating inspirational women from the East End will open later this week. It's aimed to rival the controversial Jack the Ripper Museum, which as billed during the planning stage as a dedicated resource to women's history, but instead focused on the serial killer. Earlier a billboard was unveiled urging people to shun the Ripper venue. Becky Warnock and Abbie Gilligan from the East End Women's collective are behind the new exhibition.
