Ain’t I woman #3 and #4 writing
I want to know 2 examples of what she means by saying “arn’t I a woman?”. In the text, Truth said, " Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles or gives me any best place! And arn't I a woman." When she said that, I wonder did she mean since she is African American, White man doesn't treat her as a woman. "Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! arn't I a woman?" This phrase made me think that just because she is a woman, doesn't mean she's weak.
I want to know what she her “cup” is referring to. In the text it says that people always talk about “intellect”, then she says, “That’s it honey. What’s that got to do with woman’s right’s or negroes’ rights?” First, I had to think about what she meant by saying this. I believe she meant that just because we’re woman or black, doesn’t mean we don’t have intellect. After that, in the text it says, “If my cup won’t hold a pint and yours hold a quart, wouldn’t you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?” The first citation gave me a clue to understand what she meant. She must be asking something like, ‘is it wrong for me to have any right’ or something like that.
