Hallie Rubenhold in conversation with Lucía Blasco

Colombia Digital 2021, 

Hallie Rubenhold (United Kingdom-United States) is a historian, writer and historical consultant for television programmes and film. She has written two historical novels and five non-fiction books, including The Covent Garden Ladies and Lady Worsley’s Whim, which inspired television series in the United Kingdom. Her most recent work is The Five, which compiles the five biographies of women murdered in 1888 and presumed to be victims of the famous Jack the Ripper. Her work is an exploration of the lives of women in the UK in the 19th century, with particular interest in an aspect that was taboo in the conservative British society of the period: sex.
