WHO WAS ERNESTINE ROSE?
Famous in the 19th-century as a passionate feminist, abolitionist, and freethinker, ERNESTINE ROSE (1810-92),a Polish-born rabbi's daughter, was celebrated in her chosen country, the United States, as an outstanding activist orator speaking on women's rights before such a movement existed and when it was scandalous for women to speak in public. She has, until recently, been unjustly forgotten but her legacy is re-emerging. Recently, the Museum of the City of New York selected Ernestine Rose as one of the 400 most influential New Yorkers.
Invitation: Please join members of the Ernestine Rose Society, Women's Studies Research Center, Brandeis University, Judson Church and Cultural Center, National Council of Jewish Women, New York chapter, and other co-sponsors TBA to celebrate the 200th Birthday of this tireless activist in her American home town.
