    Senator preps legislation to put a woman’s face on $20 bills

    Who will replace former President Andrew Jackson on a $20 bill? Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks are some of the frontrunners.
    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is doing her part to boot former President Andrew Jackson’s face off the $20 bill and replace the seventh U.S. president with the face of a woman.

    Following the lead of a nonprofit called Women on 20s, which has been mustering support to find a replacement for Jackson, Shaheen filed a measure this week that would empanel a committee to research and debate the list of candidates that would supplant Old Hickory, and advise the Secretary of the Treasury.

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat, introduced a bill that would form a committee to pitch a list of women for the Department of Treasury to print on a $20 bill.
    Likely choices among a list of 15 candidates selected by the organization include former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, intrepid abolitionist Harriet Tubman and pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart.

    Former Cherokee Nation Chief Wilma Mankiller has also emerged as a leading candidate.

    “It’s long overdue for that reflection to include the contributions of women,” The New Hampshire Democrat, Shaheen, said in a statement Wednesday. “The incredible grassroots support for this idea shows that there’s strong support for a woman to be the new face of the twenty dollar bill.”

    The campaign’s advocates are hoping to achieve their endgame by 2020 when the U.S. celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.

    Jackson’s bushy brows and wavy locks have graced the paper currency since at least 1929, when the Treasury rolled out a uniform look for currency and reduced the size of paper bills.

    Rosa Parks, pictured in 1986 at Ellis Island in New York, is one of the top women backed for a place on the $20 bill.
    The Yonkers woman behind Women on 20s, Barbara Ortiz Howard, has argued it wouldn’t cost the government more than it already does to update currency as a protective tactic against counterfeiting.

    Her campaign has been ongoing since January, and nearly a half million people have voted to narrow the field from an initial list of 15 candidates.

    Howard measures Shaheen’s legislation as one sign of her initiative’s impact, along with the support the campaign has received among Republicans. She expects more legislation out of New Jersey and New York to lean her way as well.

    “The portrait on our money is just some arbitrary one that was put on by a committee in 1929. They wanted money to be distinguishable and they just selected presidents,” Howard, 62, told the Daily News. “We have an opportunity to make our money matter in a broader way.”

    Former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, is a leading candidate as well for the Women on 20s project.


    Martha Washington briefly appeared on $1 silver certificates in 1886, 1891 and 1896, but other than that, only the portraits of women to have found their way onto currency were those of suffragist Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea, a Shoshone guide for the Lewis & Clark expedition. Both appeared on a dollar coin.

    A Daily News reader’s choice poll last month picked Roosevelt as a favorite for redesigned currency.

    Shaheen’s endorsement of the campaign has been mirrored by New Hampshire U.S Rep. Annie Kuster and the city of Philadelphia.

    Celebrities including Susan Sarandon and Eddie Vedder have also joined the bandwagon. The campaign got a plug from talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday.

    President Obama has yet to address Howard’s campaign, but he called the suggestion to put a woman on American currency, detailed in a letter he received from a young girl, a “pretty good idea.”

    Imagine an elected official wasting time and resources on some bullshit like this. She's all proud of herself.

    No one wants broads on money. The last 2 attempts at it were complete failures.

    None. Andrew Jackson is a top 5 president who had a balanced budget and beat the shit out of someone with a cane after someone tried to shoot him. Though J Edgar Hoover would be a possibility on a dime.

    Why not just put a burka over Andrew Jackson? Call it the first Muslim woman on money. Who could tell?

    I think it should be a blaek woman, like Michelle Obama or Moms Mabley, just to piss off the bigots.
