Recommended Posts

Harriet Tubman recruited to appear on $20 bill after vote

_____________________________________________

Could Americans soon be calling their $20 bills "Tubmans?"

Move over, former US president Andrew Jackson. Voters of an online poll have chosen famous abolitionist Harriet Tubman to replace him on the twenty dollar bill.

A grassroots campaign is pushing the US Department of the Treasury to put a woman on American currency.

The group is pushing it before 100th anniversary of Constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote.

All seven bills currently in circulation in the US feature a man's face.

 

The Woman on 20s campaign surveyed 600,000 people over 10 weeks and Tubman emerged as the winner.
