Abstract

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is calling for nominations for a woman to grace the $10 bill that will be released in 2020. Already names are flying fast and furiously, with Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, and Harriet Tubman leading the pack. As a scholar of women’s history, I have a few suggestions to help narrow the field for this exciting race.
