  • "Nobody ever helps me into carriages,
    or over mud-puddles,
    or gives me any best place!
    And ain't I a woman?
    I could work as much
    and eat as much as a man
    - when I could get it -
    and bear the last as well!

    and seen them most all sold off to slavery,
    and when I cried out with my mother's grief,
    none but Jesus heard me!
    And ain't I a woman?"
    - Sojourner Truth
