Mystery Woman To Be On The New $10 Bill!
Alexander Hamilton, who has been featured on the $10 bill since 1929, is making way for a woman. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is to officially announce Thursday that a redesign of the $10 will feature the first woman on the nation’s paper money in more than a century. The last woman featured on U.S. paper money was Martha Washington. Lew is asking the public for suggestions on who should be chosen for the bill, as well as what symbols of democracy it should feature. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat from New Hampshire, is sponsoring legislation to put a woman on the $20 bill, but she praised Lew for moving forward with the decision to use the $10 bill. Shaheen said in a statement, “While it may not be the twenty dollar bill, make no mistake, this is a historic announcement.”
