"She" is more of a corrupt world economic system.

She emerges symbolically from the seas, which represent the many nations of earth.

I always thought it the Vatican, but maybe that's a part of it too as in the sense of Idolatry maybe?

Personal belief: The Hebrews (Abraham - Jacob - 12 Sons) were a purer mightier bloodline before they went to Babylon and intermixed and become diversified. The Sons Of Jacob (Israelites) were not like the Jews that stake their claim there today, and may not even be related (very much).

The Talmud is supposed to be originated from Babylonian traditions also.

From wiki, for what it's worth:

The Whore of Babylon or Babylon the Great is a symbolic female figure and also place of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. Her full title is stated in Revelation 17 (Revelation 17:5) as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth..

The Whore is associated with the Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation by connection with an equally evil kingdom. (The word "Whore" can also be translated metaphorically as "Idolatress").[2] The Whore's apocalyptic downfall is prophesied to take place in the hands of the image of the beast with seven heads and ten horns. There is much speculation within Christian eschatology on what the Whore and beast symbolize as well as the possible implications for contemporary interpretations.

Many Biblical scholars[7][8] believe that "Babylon" is a metaphor for the pagan Roman Empire at the time it persecuted Christians, before the Edict of Milan in 313. Perhaps the phrase is specifically referencing some aspect of Rome's rule (brutality, greed, paganism)

Several Old Testament prophets referred to Jerusalem as being a spiritual harlot and a mother of such harlotry For example, in Matthew 23:34–37 and Luke 11:47–51, Jesus himself assigned all of the bloodguilt for the killing of the prophets and of the saints (of all time) to the Pharisees of Jerusalem. In Revelation 17:6 and 18:20,24, almost identical phrasing is used in charging that very same bloodguilt to Babylon. This is also bolstered by Jesus' statement that "it's not possible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem." (Luke 13:33).[30]

In the most common medieval (Catholic) view, deriving from Augustine of Hippo's The City of God (early 5th century), Babylon and Jerusalem referred to two spiritual cities (or civilizations) which were spiritually at war with one another, throughout all of history:

Babylon [from Babel] is interpreted confusion, Jerusalem vision of peace. . . . They are mingled, and from the very beginning of mankind mingled they run on unto the end of the world. . . . Two loves make up these two cities: love of God makes Jerusalem, love of the world makes Babylon.[32]

They also represented two principles at war with one another, inside each individual person, even inside seemingly worldly Christian monarchs; thus Augustine could boast approvingly, "...believing [Christian] monarchs of this world, came to the city of Rome, as to the head of Babylon: they went not to the temple of the Emperor, but to the tomb of the Fisherman."[33] On the other hand, even seemingly religious popes could become so entangled in worldly pursuits as to constitute "Babylon," in Dante's eyes:

Dante Alighieri equated the corruption and simony of the pontificate of Pope Boniface VIII (term 1294-1303) with the Whore of Babylon in Canto 19 of his Inferno:
