“For far too long, Americans’ folding money has displayed an all-male portrait gallery of dead Presidents and other prominent men from the nation’s past. Placing a woman’s portrait on our currency is a form of equal rights that hasn’t received nearly enough attention up to now.”

“Recognition of women on U.S. paper currency is long overdue. We have not had an actual, historical woman depicted on our paper money since 1896 when Martha Washington appeared with her husband, George, on $1 notes.”

“The U.S. dollar is the world’s most widely used medium of exchange, and as the father of a daughter — and a son — I heartily endorse placing a woman’s portrait on U.S. $10 bills, and hope this recognition of women continues to other currency and circulating coins into the future.”
