No doubt about it. We live in a crazy world. However, there still are great things about it that make it worth being a part of it all.
Did you know that the portrait of a woman will be appearing soon on our lovely $10 bill? According to the New York Times,
The note will continue to have some image, also to be determined, of the current $10 honoree, Alexander Hamilton, a founding father (there were, of course, no mothers) and Treasury secretary to President George Washington (he of the $1 bill). Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, who by law makes the selection of an honoree, will disclose his choice by the end of the year. The new note will appear in 2020 — the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
They still haven't determined whose face will be sharing the space with Alexander Hamilton, but it figures that our society still feels that women haven't progressed enough to be able to capture the limelight alone.
