About this title
Susan B. Anthony hung a picture of her on the wall. Elizabeth Cady Stanton publicly eulogized her invaluable contributions to the women’s rights movement. Unique among her peers as an immigrant atheist of Jewish background, celebrity orator Ernestine Rose won the title “Queen of the Platform” for her brilliant speeches advocating, and linking together, women’s rights, the abolition of slavery, and religious freedom. This first collection of her extant papers reclaims her place with Anthony and Stanton.
Paula Doress-Worters, a veteran activist, co-wrote the groundbreaking Our Bodies, Ourselves in 1970 and each subsequent edition.About the Author:
Born in Poland to a Jewish family, Ernestine Louise Rose (1810 -1892) was a feminist, abolitionist, freethinker, and atheist. She was one of the major intellectual forces behind the women's rights movement in nineteenth-century America. After over thirty years of activism, Rose retired in 1869 to England, where she died 22 years later. Paula Doress-Worters, a veteran activist, is one of the original authors of the groundbreaking Our Bodies, Ourselves (1970) and has contributed to every edition up to Our Bodies, Ourselves for the New Century (1998). She is currently the director of the Ernestine Rose Society and a Scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center of Brandeis University.
