Put women on the money

What do you see when you look at a twenty dollar bill? The same thing you see when you look at a one dollar bill, a five dollar bill, a ten dollar bill, a fifty, or a hundred — a white man.

#WomenOn20s aims to change that with a campaign to put a woman’s face on the twenty dollar bill. Although we have one dollar coins depicting Susan B. Anthony and Sacajawea, we all know they’re not in wide use. The centennial of the passage of the 19th amendment is coming right up in 2020, so it’s about time we put the face of a great American woman on our paper money.

President Obama already thinks it’s a good idea.

WomenOn20s has selected fifteen great American women and asked people to vote for their three top choices. I voted for Harriet Tubman and Rachel Carson. Who will you pick?
