There have been a few articles recently about the possibility of putting the first women on US paper currency. The discussion has been driven by a few polls and by an off the cuff question asked by a little girl of the President a few days ago. I think the idea is worth exploring and I was wondering who would be best suited for the position. Of all the names I've seen tossed out Sally Ride, Susan B. Anthony, and Rosa Parks seemed the most deserving. If I was forced to pick I think Susan B. Anthony is best suited because of her broad and enduring impact on American history and because she better fits chronologically with our current choices.
I put up the options I'd read tossed around the most with one or two of my own choosing but feel free to add in your own. I also recognize that this would force the displacement of someone else from our currency and if I had to pick I don't think I'd be too sorry to see Jackson go.
