    A woman will appear on redesigned $10 bill in 2020

    This is silly. No woman has ever really accomplished anything noteworthy in the history of the country. Rosa Parks?? HAHAHA. There are thousands of men more deserving.


    A woman will appear on redesigned $10 bill in 2020 - The Washington Post

    june 17 2015
    Will it be Susan B. Anthony or Harriet Tubman? Eleanor Roosevelt or Rosa Parks? Or another important woman from American history?

    These will be among the names the nation ponders after the Obama administration’s announcement late Wednesday that a woman will be featured on the $10 bill, the first time in well over a century that a female portrait will grace the United States’ paper money.

    The redesigned bill will be unveiled in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the right of women to vote. The Treasury Department is launching a massive public campaign to solicit suggestions through social media and town halls for what the bill should look like and who should be on it. The only requirements for candidacy are that the woman be deceased and embody the theme of the bill’s new look: “Democracy.”

    I'll be happy to accept any $10 bills he throws away in his righteous indignation.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I see this is being done for nothing more than PC politics.
    you have to have a decent reason to actually do this and politics is not a good enough reason.

    there are also women already on coinage.

    Do you think any woman in American history deserves it?

    Yeah... but she wasn't Eleanor Roosevelt either.

    Dolly Madison would be a nice choice, but we don't know what she looked like.

    Lady liberty would be good.

    I don't get why the $10 is being chosen? This internet campaign to put a woman on the $20 made sense.

    I mean, Jackson was an asshole.
