A feminist group called ‘Women on 20s’ seeks to remove the image of Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill and replace it with a picture of one of the many illustrious women from American history.
Rosa Parks is one of the finalists in their campaign, which initially consisted of 15 inspiring American women. Over 256,000 voters cast ballots over the last 5 weeks to narrow the selection down to 4.
Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks are the people’s choice and will advance to the final ballot for your consideration. In addition, Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller has been added to the final ballot by popular demand in order to include a choice of a Native American to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
The $20 bill was selected because 2020 will be the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote.
So it seems fitting to commemorate that milestone by voting to elevate women to a place that is today reserved exclusively for the men who shaped American history. That place is on our paper money. And that new portrait can become a symbol of greater changes to come.
