They want to take Thomas Jefferson off the ten. Which absolutely infuriates me because Jefferson was the one who wrote the Declaration of Independence.
I don't care who you are, just because you're a woman does not mean you get to replace the man who had a hand in freeing our country. Sorry for ranting.

Hamilton is on the ten.
Fucked up the rotation. I know..

Oh my b. I got the dollar bill shit mixed up with some article I saw about wanting to remove the Jefferson memorial because he was a slave owner.
Thanks.

I think he was a vocal opponent of slavery calling it a "hideous blot" and the "largest threat to the security of the colonies." He tried to make it illegal but the trade got to large. I believe he also let his slaves go free after he died.

not him off, just a woman on

lol, which woman? There are so few women in the US who've accomplished enough to earn a spot in the history books, but I can't think of one who has shaped the US in an influential way. Hell, there are barely any men in the that category. Jackson is probably only on the 20 dollar bill just to spite him. The whole, "we should put a woman on a US currency" debate is less about who we take off, but who would legitimately deserve the honor and recognition of being on a coin or bill, regardless of gender. Really, who would deserve to be on a bill or coin? The most recent person I can think of who got put on a coin was JFK (half dollar coin) and I haven't seen that coin in about a decade. Who would deserve to be on the 20 dollar bill, the most popular denomination of US bills?
User avatar #104 - pkman (07/05/2015) [-]
I think Harriet Tubman would be a good woman to go on a bill. She was a big part of U.S. during the civil war being part of the underground railroad. There isn't much controversy (as far as I know) about whether she really helped slaves. Also she is black so a double-minority on the bill which is pretty cool I guess.
User avatar #221 - torky (07/06/2015) [-]
Harriet Tubman wouldn't be my pick at all. Not to say she wasn't important, but she didn't shape or influence the US. She certainly did do valiant deeds through the Civil War, but if our standards for putting people on currency were to be "people who did notable things in the US" then there would be less of a debate.

The people who are on the US are people who shaped the US. Founding Fathers and Presidents who've become immortalized for their actions. Everyone there played an important role shaping the US. Harriet Tubman was a spy and a humanitarian who helped slaves escape via Underground railroad. Abraham Lincoln, abolished slavery and reunited the Union after the Civil War. There is a large contrast of how important they were during their times and how much they influenced (one of the reasons why most people who end up on currency are presidents, they have a lot more power to throw around to accomplish things)

To be fair, there aren't a lot of people who deserve to be on currency, especially anyone recently.

>>#100,
I wasn't aware that Susan B Anthony was on the one dollar coin. I always thought it was Sacagawea. That's the one I've come across the most. However, I believe that the debate is on who should replace Jackson on the 20 dollar bill. She's definitely a candidate for the spot, but the question is: Is her legacy that influential?
User avatar #223 - pkman (07/06/2015) [-]
Hmmm ok. By that description then I don't think any woman would really be qualified to be on the dollar. U.S. history has been mainly shaped by white men. Maybe like a first lady could be there? Or a woman who held a high office in the past?
Idk there is a true right answer, I'm sure despite whoever is picked there will be people against it.
User avatar #224 - torky (07/06/2015) [-]
Seems so. I have hopes that in the future, there will be a woman who will rise up to the challenge and earn a spot in the history books along side Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, but for now, not many women (or men) are 20 Dollar Bill eligible, not even Andrew Jackson.

Though the best choice is probably Susan B. Anthony if we were to pick a woman, but that's just my opinion.

I agree there is no woman who is more deserving than Jackson. However Jackson was the most fundamentalist about gold and silver being the only form of currency of any of the founding fathers. Jackson is only there because he was the legacy face of the gold certificate ($20). It seems an insult to him to have him as a face of a central bank note.
