Abstract

In The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter, Bonnie S. Anderson recovers the legacy of one of the nineteenth century's most prominent radical activists. In the U. S., Rose was a prominent leader at every national women's rights convention, lecturing across the country in favor of feminism and against slavery and religion. But the rise of anti-Semitism and religious fervor during the Civil War-coupled with rifts in the women's movement when black men, but not women, got the vote- left Rose without a platform. Nearly a century later, The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter, a well-rounded portrait of one of the mothers of the American feminist movement, returns Ernestine Rose to her rightful place.
