Woman to Replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 Bill
American paper currency has been dominated by males for centuries. Exceptions were Martha Washington on a dollar certificate in the late 1800's and Pocahontas in the late 1860's. More recently, Sacagawea and Susan B. Anthony on dollar coins.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-New Hampshire, is quoted as saying: "While it may not be the twenty dollar bill, make no mistake, this is a historic announcement. Young girls across this country will soon be able to see an inspiring woman on the ten dollar bill."
But who will replace Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill? Legislature doesn't know yet but are taking suggestions. Which famous American woman should it be?
Martha Washington (again)?
Feel free to leave your suggestions, as many as you wish.
