About this tattoo
This quote comes from a women’s right advocate in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. On the Univeristy of Tennessee Knoxville campus a plaque is dedicated to her stating: The young women of today- free to choose their occupation should remember that every inch of this freedom was bought for them at a great price… “The debt that each generation owes to the past it must pay to the future”. As a woman grateful for the freedom I have that women have not always had, I find these words very significant.
