It would be nice to see a womans face on the face of a bill but I think it should only be presidents and we should not change it after 88 years. Andrew Jackson must remain on the $20 bill! :)

They need to leave the money alone.

I don't think they should take Jackson off but maybe add her on or put her on the back.

I think they should leave well enough alone.  The presidents should be the only ones on our money.  Now that this is started what's next, reality stars on them?

Not sure how to feel about this. If I say, "I don't care", then I am viewed as uncaring and nonchalant. If I say, "I care" then I will probably be labeled as a feminist (being a black female, many people may naturally believe that I have this passionate zeal in seeing Harriet Tubman on the money). So I will say this: It does not bother me either way, as long as I can spend the darn thing, LOL.

I think it's wonderful that we will have a great person such as Harriet Tubman on the $20.00 dollar bill.  She was responsible for helping to save so many lives that would have otherwise been lost.   :notworthy: :notworthy: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :rose: :rose:

Yeah, it's kind of a no win situation here. I really don't think we ought to take Jackson off the $20. I say create a new denomination. A $25? A $7? and put Harriet on that.

Google JediJohnnie and May the Force be with you!

You know, I like your response.  I think that is exactly the way I feel about it.  I like having a woman.  I think we should only have significant, historic figures on our money.

It was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.
