Of course we've already had two different women appear on $1 coins, and if you go to Canada or England, you will find every piece of monetary paper graced by a very old woman called Queen Elizabeth II
And trust me, young girls there have the same identity insecurities about things like weight and trying to look like that piece of filth Kim Kardashian and other clueless 'stars' who grace the magazine covers.
~ Rosa Parks.. Ugh! Hundreds of American women so much more important
Why the Treasury is involved in this socio-political gender appeasement farce is anyone's guess.
So today I am going to come up with my own personal list where every paper and coin denomination is to be honoring a woman, and as with yesterday, I reserve the right to put women who are alive as well as those deceased..
It just makes things funner..
Besides being the first President's wife to really establish what the functions of the First Lady are supposed to be, she was credited with saving the classic portrait of George Washington when the British set fire to Washington DC in 1814,.
$10 Bill - I'm keeping Condoleezza Rice, former head of NSA and Secretary of State under Bush as my representative of the $10..

Who is she? Only the inventor of the most popular and famous doll in the post-WWII world, Barbie She also was co-founder of the toy company Mattel and ran the company very successfully.
Dime - Since FDR is on the real dime, I put Eleanor Roosevelt on my ten-cent piece
Half Dollar - Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic and did what she could to motivate other women to become pilots and other careers in the field of aviation
Notice none of the list were there for trivial reasons like rudely refusing to get up from a bus seat or winning Oscars
I wonder if any of the great women I listed will be the ultimate $10 'winner' or if the Treasury will pick someone more inconsequential like Rosa Parks or Harriet Tubman to placate two minority voting blocs at the same time..
