The U.S. Treasury recently announced that the newly re-designed $10 bill, slated for 2020, will feature the face of a woman to honor the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The announcement set the Internet ablaze with suggestions for which historical U.S. woman would adorn the new bill.
