How do i balance this sentence? Is it already balanced?
Tubman wanted freedom regardless of personal danger, whereas for her husband,john,personal safty was more important than freedom.
If you mean parallel structure as balance, then you need to make sure that the subject of each clause is similar to the subject in the other clause. In this case you start out with the name of a person as the subject of the first clause (Tubman), but the subject of the second clause is "safety."
Tubman wanted freedom regardless of personal danger, whereas her husband John desired personal safety more than freedom.
