REPORT: Harriet Tubman To Replace Jackson On The $20 Bill
It looks like the one of the best-known pioneers of the anti-slave movement will be the new face on the 20 dollar bill. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is due to make an announcement on the issue later today, but early reports point to Harriet Tubman replacing President Andrew Jackson on the U.S. currency bill.
The nod to the women's movement does not stop with the twenty dollar bill. CNN reports that a collage of other leaders of the women's rights movement will be added to the back of the 10 dollar bill. The women pictured on the bill will be the first to appear on U.S. paper currency in more than 100 years.
The topic of adding a woman to one of the U.S. currency bills has long been discussed. See the segment below from CBS This Morning last year:
