Regardless of how movement rhetors manage the dilemma of ideological purity and strategic adaptation, some members will be purged, either overtly or covertly, as their contributions and beliefs simply disappear from movement rhetoric. After the Civil War, Potowski Rose's belief in the essential humanness of all persons became irrelevant, then problematic, for suffragists. Her persona was even more difficult to integrate into a rhetoric of moderation and expediency. As movements progress they change in fundamental ways. The lessons of that transformative process may be Potowski Rose's most important legacy to contemporary feminists.
