This is Actually Happening

I honestly did not think this would really happen.

Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill

I wrote about the campaign to put a woman on the $20 last year, and after Harriet Tubman won the vote, there was talk about printing some $10 bills with a woman on it. But I didn't think that would even happen. But apparently the Treasury Secretary had a change of heart.

Harriet Tubman is going to replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce today. 
Sources told Politico that Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the $10 bill, but that members of the women’s suffrage movement will be added to the back. Depictions of civil rights era leaders will be incorporated into the $5 bill, as well.

Wow! Not bad!

Now I'm just waiting for the white dudes to come out of the bushes to be all "what is this SJW bullshit." Because any women or people of color appearing ever is, of course, SJW bullshit.
