Vem var kvinna? Om Sojourner Truth och uppkomsten av en amerikansk kvinnorättsrörelse
Sammanfattning: The words of Sojourner Truth, a 19th century preacher, womanist and abolitionist are often cited when the connection between the abolitionist movement and the early women’s movement in the USA is brought up. This essay aims to examine the origins of that movement that is usually described as the first wave of feminism in the USA. Using the tools of intersectional theory the analysis of this essay tries to investigate the position of the African American women in these social movements. Quotes from different speeches held by Sojourner Truth are analyzed with purpose to illustrate the perspective of an African American woman who tried to remind the organizations she addressed that African Americans and women are not two isolated social groups. I think that we still need this reminder, in our present time but also while trying to understand the history of different social movements.
