Words: "The young women of today ..." by Abigail Duniway

Sunday, August 21, 2011

‎"The young women of today, free to study, to speak, to write, to choose their occupation, should remember that every inch of this freedom was bought for them at a great price. It is for them to show their gratitudeby helping onward the reforms of their own times, by spreading the light of freedom and of truth still wider. The debt that each generation owes to the past it must pay to the future."

-Abigail Duniway, U.S. suffragette and news editor
(note that she said this before women in the U.S.A. had the constitutional right to vote)
