Abigail Scott Duniway (October 22, 1834 – October 11, 1915) was a women's rights advocate, newspaper editor, and writer from the U.S. state of Oregon, whose efforts were instrumental in gaining voting rights for women.


  • 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 gratitude by 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.
