Sojourner Truth--A Woman of Strength and Vision.
Haas, Adelaide
Based upon research conducted during the past decade that identifies speech features of form, topic, content, and use of language as male- or female-associated, this paper examines the rhetoric of Sojourner Truth in reference to these features. It classifies her directness, originality, and action as male-associated and her modesty, emotionalism, and sensitivity as female-associated. It concludes that hers was an androgynous speech that was not limited by genderlect. (Author)
