Famous American Women Who Deserve Their Faces On Money

Voting Rules
Who deserves their face on a bill?

Sure, we have Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea on dollar coins, but isn't it time we get some women's faces on some bills? In 2015, the Women on 20s campaign sent a petition to the White House to push President Barack Obama to support the movement and, later, a bill was introduced to Congress to get a woman on the $20 note. In 2016, the Department of the Treasury announced that Harriet Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill starting in 2020. However, in 2019, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the design process had been delayed and Tubman would not appear on the $20 bill until at least 2028.

What other famous women should be considered for the next faces of American money? Maybe Amelia Earhart? Or perhaps Eleanor Roosevelt or Helen Keller? This list has tons of eligible ladies - from actresses to famous civil rights activists. Who do you think should be the new face of our $1? Our $5? Our $100? (Although, that would change the whole "all about the Benjamins" thing. "All about the Elizabeth Cady Stantons"?)
