What Would You Look Like On the $10 Bill?

Women currently account for more than half of the United States' population, yet the faces of women are missing from a basic necessity of American capitalism: currency.

In summer 2015, United States Secretary of Treasury Jack Lew finally made what many believed to be a promise to include a woman's face on the new $10 bill.

The United States Treasury has now missed its own deadline and with an updated announcement now days away many critics believe women might just be pushed to the back of the new $10 bill (or may have to wait more than a decade to find a woman on a $20 bill).

MAKERS took to the streets of New York to find women who believe that if they can see their faces on the money they use, they can also be anything they want.
