True crime stories may be the trending topic of the day but in Yorkshire one case has long remained fresh in the minds of locals. Penned by author Carol Ann Lee, Somebody’s Mother, Somebody’s Daughter takes us beyond the headlines to honour the women who lost their lives at the hands of the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, and the misogynistic system that systematically failed them.

To inspect this issue, we’re delighted to be joined by Lee and a panel of special guests, including journalist and Bradford local Christa Ackroyd, to question how unnecessary police labels like ‘prostitute’ extended Sutcliffe’s reign of terror. Our panel will also look at how we as a nation have changed in the intervening years – from the peak of this case to 2021’s Reclaim The Streets vigils inspired by the murder of Sarah Everard.
