The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter

Chapter 4 describes how Ernestine Rose connected with Paulina Wright Davis and Elizabeth Cady Stanton through her work for married women’s property rights. It also shows her growing involvement in anti-slavery activism, which introduced her to Lucretia Mott, Abbey Kelley, Stephen Foster, William Lloyd Garrison, and others within the abolition movement. These people created the early US women’s movement. Although Rose did not attend the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, whose audience was very local, she came to the fore at the first National Woman’s Rights Convention in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1850. The chapter concludes by showing her central role within the women’s movement, solidified by her work at Worcester in 1851.
