What is the main idea of this passage?

”Ain’t I a Woman?”
Sojourner Truth
Women’s Rights Convention, Akron, Ohio, May 1851

(1) I want to say a few words about this matter. (2) I am a woman’s rights. (3) I have as much muscle as any man, and can do as much work as any man. (4) I have plowed and reaped and husked and chopped and mowed, and can any man do more than that? (5) I have heard much about the sexes being equal. (6) I can carry as much as any man, and can eat as much too, if I can get it. (7) I am as strong as any man that is now. (8) As for intellect, all I can say is, if a woman have a pint, and a man a quart — why can’t she have her little pint full? (9) You need not be afraid to give us our rights for fear we will take too much, — for we can’t take more than our pint’ll hold. (10) The poor men seems to be all in confusion, and don’t know what to do. (11) Why children, if you have woman’s rights, give it to her and you will feel better. (12) You will have your own rights, and they won’t be so much trouble.
