Future $20 Bills May Feature Woman's Face In Place Of Andrew Jackson's

In the future, there may be a new face on twenty dollar bills if Barbara Ortiz Howard and Susan Ades Stone have their way.

The pair established the non-profit organization simply called Women on 20s. Everyone can cast their vote for former President Andrew Jackson's replacement on the twenty.

The reason why the women are targeting that particular bill at this time is likely because of Jackson's controversial history. Over the years, some of his decisions and often fierce tactics have been called into question.

Aside from that, the women would simply like to see a female's face on a monetary bill. The Women on 20s website explains, "We believe this simple, symbolic and long-overdue change could be an important stepping stone for other initiatives promoting gender equality."

They hope their campaign will result in the twenties being issued in 2020, either on or near the date of the 100th anniversary of the Constitutional amendment, which granted women the right to vote.

A ballot is currently on the site with 15 influential and notable candidates. A few listed names are Clara Barton, Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony and Eleanor Roosevelt.
