Harriet Tubman Proposed As Replacement For Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill


The group Women on 20s is devoted to replacing Andrew Jackson's picture on the 20-dollar bill with one of a woman.

For months they've been narrowing the field of which female that should be, and they've finally decided on one.

The abolitionist Harriet Tubman was selected via an online poll conducted on the organization's website.

Among the final 4 candidates, Tubman received just over 33 percent of the votes.

Eleanor Roosevelt pulled in enough support to land her in 2nd place.

Rosa Parks finished 3rd, and in 4th was Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Wilma Mankiller.

Women on 20s is asking that people support the campaign by using the hashtag DearMrPresident when discussing the push to put a woman on paper money.

It's their feeling that it's high time for such a thing happen.

The group's executive director said, "Our paper bills are like pocket monuments to great figures in our history. Our work won't be done until we're holding a Harriet $20 bill in our hands..."

Congress is currently discussing an act that addresses the matter at large.

Ultimately, however, it's up to the Secretary of the Treasury to decide if a woman will appear on the 20, and if so, who it will be.
