Her Unsurpassed Speech
The Introduction begins with Rose’s address to the 1851 National Woman’s Rights Convention, showing her in her prime as an outstanding orator. It then surveys her career, showing how her unique status as an atheist and an internationalist influenced her contributions to her three chief causes: free thought, feminism, and anti-slavery. Despite occasional self-righteousness, Rose had a great sense of humor and often used sarcasm against her opponents. Notwithstanding her conviction that her contributions were unimportant, her unique life of activism contributes to the variety of US history.
