Hazel O'Leary, US Secretary of Energy 1993-1997 stood up to the " big old boys club "to stop nuclear bomb testing.
Rachel Carson was the mother of the environmental movement (Book-Silent Spring)
Both of these women should be considered for the honor.
Harriet Tubman stood for so much and is not only a great African American hero she was a great American Hero.
Eleanor Roosevelt was such a dynamic role model for women in a time when most women did not work for a living outside the home and were dissatisfied being looked upon as subservient to the men who governed and were otherwide independent in this country. She was an inexhaustible support for her husband, FDR; wrote a widely-read national news column; was eventually an ambassador to the U.N.; and influenced many politicians and foreign figures. She cared for common people and took time to visit the only Jewish immigrant group from Europe to finally settle in Fort Oswego, NY during harrowing times. She was a true Renaissance lady and helped pull America through World War II.
The 19th Amendment - The Susan B Anthony Amendment is what gives 53% of the current electorate the right to vote. She is most deserving. I respect the other choices and reasons. I am for Susan B Anthony being on a currency bill.
I don't know why it has to be Hamilton that gets booted, but if it is, I vote for Harriet Tubman. She risked her life. She is a hero. All the others are memorable, but didn't risk what she did. Every time she went back to help others, she put her life on the line. Roosevelt and others did not do this. They came from wealth and used it. She came from slavery and used her freedom to help others. She deserves this more than anyone else on the list. If not her, then I like the idea of Rosie the Riveter. She embodies all of womanhood and what they do for society. I'm sticking with Harriet Tubman though, she was great.
Are you kidding me this is what America is worried about! The Federal Reserve has printed more fiat worthless currency in the last 7 yrs since the last recession. A completely fake recovery to pump up stock market and inject 0% interest into Americans. Do yourself a favor do not listen to the nonsense the media is feeding the public everybody is believing this fake recovery! Buy real tangible money with fake fiat before its to late! This is why one of many reasons America is going down hill.
It would be nice if they kept Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill and bumped someone else off...Hamilton created our banking system and currency- how they decided to remove him is beyond me. A woman should most definitely be on our paper currency but not at Hamilton's expense. How about removing Andrew Jackson? After all he loathed the central bank and what he felt it stood for.
Harriet Tubman, more than any other female on the list deserves to be on the $10 Bill for ALL that she has accomplished in her lifetime. Though born a slave, she not only fought to become free, but once she achieved this goal, she helped dozens of other slaves to acquire their freedom as well, risking her own life in the process. Her humanitarian efforts didn't end there, she was also a Civil War activist, she was the first woman to lead an armed assault during the Civil War, in which she helped more than 750 slaves escape from their plantations to a waiting steamboat on the Combahee River. During the Civil War she also served as a nurse, helping to aid soldiers suffering from dysentery and small pox by preparing remedies from local plants. During this time, she also managed to go back home to Auburn, New York to visit her family, and care for her ailing parents. After the war, despite her many years of service, she never received regular pay, she was denied compensation, AND, she never received a pension until many years later. Despite the fact that Harriet Tubman lived in poverty, her devotion towards humanitarian efforts continued. She worked with Susan B. Anthony, to advocate on behalf of the Suffrage Movement, even though she "could not vote", she understood all too well what it meant to "suffer" and to be denied certain freedoms. She traveled to New York, Boston and Washington D.C., to speak in favor of women's voting rights. She also donated a parcel of land that she owned, so that a home for elderly African Americans could be constructed, under the condition that no one would be charged for admittance. I can think of no other woman who deserves to be featured on the $10 Bill more than Harriet Tubman. No other female on the list has endured the kind of brutality and injustice that Harriet Tubman has received and yet have the tenacity, strength and conviction to help others in spite of the potential detrimental outcome to herself. It would be absolutely appalling not to have Harriet Tubman featured on the $10 Bill. She represents ALL that America is about, strength in the face of adversity, helping your fellow man and the pursuit of "Freedom" for everyone. This is why I think Harriet Tubman should be featured on the $10 Bill. Thank you.
Susan B. Anthony was instrumental in helping women gain the right to vote. She did more for
women in this country than any other woman.
I voted for Someone Else - that someone is Lucille Ball. I feel that she has done wonders of laughing for not just women but for all human beings who know her and her talents in show business. She is the Queen of the Baby Boomers era.
If you do the research, you will realize that no one has done more for women than either Susan B. Anthony or Eleanor Roosevelt.
maya angelou is my choice, as a poet, she encouraged and inspired many to open their minds,spirits,souls, certainly a Most Phenomenal Woman, more than worthy to grace the face of our $10 bill!
If you will not leave Alexander Hamilton on the bill, and it has to be a woman, I nominate Abigail Adams.
Personally, I'd like to see Xaviera Hollander on the$10.00 bill. She is an example of a woman who came to this country with little to no money, and raised herself to financial success in her own business, and in the company of many politicians and business people, both male and female. She established a business that employed mainly women, and furthered them on their careers. From what I have read in her biography, and in writings by others, she was loved by those that were under her and over her. It has been stated many times that in her position, she often had to chew out the ladies she employed, and none of them felt abused by the experience.
Hey, don't forget Alice Paul. She might not have been the first woman fighting for women's suffrage, but she brought over the more aggressive suffragist tactics from England and was also known as the "mosquito who buzzed in the president's ear" and "the woman who changed Woodrow Wilson's mind about suffrage". You don't get much more important than that!
I just finished watching the Ken Burns Documentary "The Roosevelt's, and Intimate History". What a wonderful person Eleanor Roosevelt was. She impressed everyone she met with her drive to improve humanity. When she was sent to the Pacific Theatre during WWII to visit the troops, the General who thought that a dignitary visit was a waste of resources, was soon turned as he saw her raise the morale of the troops by talking with every person in the hospital no matter how seriously wounded. Her other accomplishments are too numerous for a short comment. Watch the Ken Burns Documentary. You will be voting for her too!!
Rosa Parks she stood for freedom!
How about Lizzie Borden ? The U.S. could stand a cut or two
If they have to change the ten dollar bill to a woman it should be of "Rosie the riveter." The women of that generation did more then all the women on the list combined. They did every thing that had to be done,build buildings,run factories,serve in the military you name it.They should be honored on the ten dollar bill.
Leave Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill. It makes sense to have him on our money as a founding father and secretary of the treasury. Don't change it!
I chose Eleanor Roosevelt because she was the ex-officio President to her husband in my opinion. She was his legs, his ears and his eyes to learn what the populace needed. Eleanor Roosevelt pushed her husband to create Social Security. This was a Privileged Class caring about the "under-class". It was the first time people felt secure in their older years. I am thankful to Eleanor Roosevelt and President Franklin Roosevelt for CARING!!! This is why I voted for her on the Ten Dollar Bill that everyone uses daily.
Fun fact: Clara Barton, while an amazing women with many accomplishments, was not actually a nurse. Tons of info here on what she did: http://www.redcross.org/about-us/history/clara-barton
leave the money alone. its fine as it is.
There is no reason to change the 20 bill, unless it is to placate a certain minority. So therefor I recommend we make a completely new 15 dollar bill and name it The "Monica Lewinsky Bill" or MLBCBJ bill.
Just look at what this female did to promote equality.
I am sure a black female will be picked, in fact I am willing to bet with anyone on this outcome.
I agree with a friend's suggestion...Madame C. J. Walker, first African American female millionaire.
She created hair products for African American women's hair. She produced and marketed these products, added to the economy of the people of the USA, and provided pride in self for many people of color.
She would be the perfect example of American ingenuity for all. I think she would be worthy of the $10 bill tribute.
Why does someones picture need to be on it? How about the American flag or state birds or significant state landmarks resembling the state quarters?
My vote goes to rosa parks.
None of the above leave it alone. This is a joke stop trying to right wrongs that aren't there!
The people who are on there should not be removed. I am sick and tired of these PC trying to change everything this country was built on. BTW there are more than a million people in this country.
Bring back the Susan B. coin! She deserves to be in circulation, and life at vending machines, parking meters, etc. would be so much simpler.
Bring back the Susan B. coin! She deserves to be in cir
I love Susan B. Anthony, but she was on the one dollar coin. It's her dearest friend and the leader of the 19th century effort for women's right to vote, Elizabeth Cady Stanton to become world known on our $20 bill.
Leave Hamilton on our $10 bill.
