The $10 Bill Gets a Woman’s Touch

By Matt Swenson, August 6, 2015

While it’s not close to equal face time, one woman is slotted to crash the men’s-only club of U.S. currency. Alexander Hamilton, the country’s first secretary of the Treasury, is being removed from the $10 bill in 2020, the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. All that’s left to decide is who is taking Hamilton’s place. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew says the agency is taking suggestions on its website and hopes to make a decision this summer. The early front-runner is Eleanor Roosevelt, the longest-serving First Lady in U.S. history, who beat out Harriet Tubman in a McClatchy-Marist poll. The winner will be the first woman on paper money since first lady Martha Washington, who was on a dollar silver certificate from 1886-96. Of course, there’s one other legitimate question: Will attendees still be using paper money in five years?
