Gender discrimination on dollar bills results in action in the States

Canada’s got the queen, but Americans only have dudes on their money and a new campaign called “Women on 20’s-dot-org” is aiming to change that.

An online petition calling on President Obama to put a woman’s face on a 20-dollar bill by 2020 has already racked up more than 250-thousand signatures.

Suggestions include First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Civil Rights pioneer Rosa Parks, Underground Railroad engineer Harriet Tubbman and Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation.
