Ernest Rose 1810-1892
Ernestine Rose was born Ernestine Louise Potowski
On October 15 and 16, 1851, Ernestine
Rose was present at the Second National Women's Rights Convention at Brinley in Worcester, Massachusetts.
There, on the first day of the
convention, October 15, 1851, she delivered a memorable speech,
let's call it
The Tender Ivy Plant speech.
Among others, the speakers at the
convention were Elizabeth Oakes Smith,
Abby Kelly Foster,
Clarina Howard Nichols,
Antoinette Brown, and Lucy Stone.
And here is Clarina Howard Nichols'
Responsibilities of Woman.
Brinley Hall was soon crowded to the
roof, and on the second day the Convention moved to City Hall.

Ernestine Rose Society.
