For example, the white Ohioan abolitionist-suffragist Frances Matilde Gage saw in Sojourner Truth a physical reminder that women were not necessarily a weaker sex—that they did do equal work with men and thus were deserving of equal political rights. Gage’s fictionalized account of Sojourner Truth’s extemporaneous speech at a women’s rights convention Gage presided over in 1851 (published twelve years later in the New York Independent in 1863) emphasized how Truth was able to quiet a restive audience by her sheer physical presence: “every eye was fixed on this almost Amazon form, which stood nearly six feet high, head erect, and eye piercing the upper air like one in a dream.
1 Commentators at the time were impressed with the recent “progress” of woman, her increased visibility in public and political affairs, her entry into colleges and universities, and her commitment to social reform.
