Harriet Tubman or Eleanor Roosevelt Could be the New Face of the $20 Bill!
Make it rain on us with nothing but twenties! President Andrew Jackson might get kicked off the $20 bill and replaced with a historical lady icon. Lady bosses up for the spot are Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller (whose surname is everything!). Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), our new spirit animal introduced the “Women of the Twenty Act”—which reportedly will call for a “panel of citzens” to direct the Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew on updating the bill with a fresh design.
The bill introduced by Shaheen is in partnership with the Women on 20s organization, who pushing for the redesign in time for the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment—which gave women the right to vote in 1920.
A likely lady president, attorney general and now this? Boys, exit earth stage left please! We’re obviously putting our full support behind this one. Stay tuned!
