Female Portrait To Appear On New $10 Bill And Twitter Has Some Ideas On Who It Should Be

It's been over a hundred years, but a woman will again be appearing on a US bank note. The $10 bill is to undergo a redesign and will be featuring a female portrait, the Treasury Department announced this week.

The new bill will appear in 2020 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the US Constitution's 19th amendment which gave women the right to vote.

Treasury secretary Jack Lew will make the final decision but has said he wants the public to come up with some ideas, naming their chosen historical figure. So a search is underway to find the right woman, which could take months.

A website has been launched explaining it all and Lew has also asked the internet to suggest its ideas using the hashtag #TheNew10.

And the internet was only too happy to oblige, although it must've forgotten the law that says no living person may appear on a bill. But lets not have a little thing like that spoil all the fun.

Here's some of the best responses.
