The most common resistance against slavery in the 19th century was abolitionism in the north. Many women of the north were abolitionist and expected their rights to be improved as well as the slaves when the time came.

If slave masters increased workloads, provided meager rations, or punished too severely, slaves registered their displeasure by slowing work, feigning illness, breaking tools, or sabotaging production. These everyday forms of resistance vexed slave masters, but there was little they could do to stop them without risking more widespread breaks in production
