women empowerment speech “ain’t a woman by sojourner truth

ain’t I a women was a speech delivered in 1851 at the women’s right convention  Akron Ohio by sojourner truth who was born into slavery . ain’t I a women became one of the most popular speeches in women empowerment and the author swell. in her speech we can see how she explains to the audience several times that there is no inequality between  women and men  example when says  “ I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman?” we can also see how she tells her audience  that women are as important valuable as mens so they deserve the same rights example”Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him” in her speech she uses ethos as when she said”i have borne thirteen children, and seen 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?” also ethos because for her its logic for women to have the same rights as mens in her speech she repeats the sentence “ain’t I a women “to prove that inequality between women and men is something that shouldn’t exist.
