A few weeks ago Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said that a new $10 bill, featuring a woman alongside Alexander Hamilton, will be released in 2020, marking the centennial of the ratification of the 19th amendment. Who should grace the $10 bill along with Alexander Hamilton? SheSpeaks members weighed in. The #1 choice, with over 50% of the vote, was Eleanor Roosevelt.
#2 on the list? Harriet Tubman with 24% of the vote. Coming in a close 3rd was Rosa Parks with 23% of the vote. Finally, in 4th was first female cheif of the Cherokee Nation, Wilma Mankiller with just 2% of the vote.

The bill is perfect as it is, leave it alone.
I honestly don't know who I would choose. Plus if a new face is going to be on the bill why leave Hamilton stay on it? Can't it be a woman alone?
A women, simple. Could be anyone of the strong women we have read about through History, but a women for sure.
I would love to see Rosa Parks, but honestly, all of the women on the list are amazing in their own right, so any of them would be great!
Leave it as is.
Leave the bill alone
