The Contributions of Frederick Douglas, William Apess, Sarah Margaret Fuller, and Sojourner Truth

Essay Sojourner Truth’s Ain’t I A Woman?

- ... The addition of anaphora and juxtaposition further helps Truth establish her tone. The repetition of the anaphora, “Ain’t I a woman?” is consistent throughout the speech.

Personally, it is easier to tell someone, “yes” than it is to say, “no.” The use of juxtaposition in her speech is very effective, as it emphasizes the rights that white men have compared to what little...   [tags: Speech, Activist, Abolitionist]

- Due to the current intensification of the reproductive health debate, the American public has recently been blasted with a plethora of media coverage of birth control and women’s rights related issues. It seems rather absurd, in this day in age, to abruptly attack contraception and birth control practices. In my opinion, this sort of rhetoric is counter-productive and tends to further divide the American public on issues that, for most of us, seem to be indisputable. Furthermore, the current women’s health rights dispute undermines the achievements of a countless number of activists and visionaries that date back to the foundation of the Republic....   [tags: Women Empowerment]
