Campaign To Get A Woman’s Face On The $20 Bill Will Break “Paper Ceiling”
Watch out white men! We’re coming to take over! While the gender pay gap is still extremely palpable, the group “Women on 20s” is trying to put women’s faces on our actual paper bills to increase our representation in a HUGE way.
Having no women or minorities on our currency reminds us that white men still run the show in our Capitalist country, but maybe that will change soon (Sojourner Truth and Rosa Parks are a big contenders).
I mean I mostly pay with debit cards anyway, but still, I would LOVE to see a gal on the face of a bill in 10 years when me and all of my brilliant girlfriends are rolling around in piles of cash because of our genius. This is especially exciting given the upcoming 100-year anniversary of women’s suffrage in 2020. [Boston]
