Two clips, one fairly recent, from the outside looking in and one fairly old, from inside looking out. 

I’ve been hanging on to these.  I think the juxtaposition is so insightful and more than a little heartbreaking. To do them justice, I wanted to formulate an eloquent comparison.  The situations, the intended audience and the speakers are so dissimilar but the intent, the observation of what is valued in the feminine, is beautifully expressed. 

Sojourner Truth (1851) “Ain’t I a Woman?”
