No, we dont think it will end up being Oprah but this IS a big step up for women! 

Starting in 2020 there will be a woman featured on the new $10 bill. 

They will not be alone either because Alexander Hamilton, the current face of the bill, isn't going away.

Hamilton has been on the $10 since 1928 and there he'll remain. He will either be on the reverse side or in a separate series of bills. 

But WHO will this woman be?? 

No woman has appeared on new paper currency since Martha Washington on a $1 silver note in the late 1800s. Pocahontas was first, gracing a $20 note beginning in 1865. 

 By law, no living person may appear on a bill, and George Washington must always remain on the $1.

Who do YOU think should be on the new $10 bill?

There was a demand for change by the public and it all started with the $20. 

USA Today --The move spares Andrew Jackson, the 19th-century Democrat who occupies the $20 bill. An online petition earlier this year urged the administration to replace Jackson with abolitionist Harriet Tubman by 2020, the 100th anniversary of the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote. But Lew said the primary consideration was the security of the currency — and the $10 bill was next in line for an upgrade.

There were four finalists chosen from the public for which woman should be on a new bill: Harriet Tubman, Wilma Mankiller, Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks. Some are even going as far as saying Oprah should be on the bill. 

Who do YOU think should be on the new $10 bill?
