"In the courts ..." Quote of Sojourner Truth

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
In the courts women have no rights, no voice; nobody speaks for them. I wish woman to have her voice there among the pettifoggers. If it is not a fit place for women, it is unfit for men to be there.
Sojourner Truth
Sojourner Truth (1797-1883), African American human rights activist and preacher. As quoted in Feminism: The Essential Historical Writings, part 3, by Miriam Schnier (1972). Speaking at an 1867 meeting of the American Equal Rights Association held in New York City.
