Best Answer

Sojourner Truth was a slave. She had 5 children and her real name was Isabella Baumfree. In 1827 the slaves of New Youk were emancipated, but Isabella had all ready run away with her youngest child. While working for another family she found out that another child was sold, but because he had been emancipated under NY law she sued the court for his freedom and won. She joined a religious commune and in the 1850's took the name of Sojourner Truth and was popular speaker against slavery and about women's suffrage. During the civil war she raised money and supplies for the black troops and met Lincoln . After the war she continued speaking, joined another religious commune, and in 1875 died in Battle Creek, Michigan.

What woman spoke out against the constitution?

Is Sojourner Truth a democrat or republican?

I'm not sure the question is meaningful. Sojourner Truth lived at a time when women could not legally vote in the US, so it's not clear that she ever had an opportunity to officially join either party. (She did attempt to vote in the 1872 election, but was turned away.) That said, she was almost certainly Republican in her leanings, since that was the party of Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant, both of whom she visited during their term as president.

Who said any job worth doing is a job worth doing well?

This is listed as a proverb; meaning no one is actually credited with the first time it was said. The earliest I know of is the quote;"In truth, whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well. This is recorded a letter dated 1746 from Lord Chesterfield of England" I hope this helps

Who defended the rights of both slaves and women?

abolitionists were considered to be people who wanted to get rid of a law that was not fair. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a big time helper in the women suffrages movement, you will find more women who helped hopefully when further researching her. Sojourner Truth was an activist back when slaves were just breaking free she wrote many books telling the northerners what was actually going on in the south. Harriet Tubman, and many more.
