What Woman Would You Like to See On the New $10 Bill?

In 1886, President Grover Cleveland accepted the Statue of Liberty on behalf of the United States and said: "We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home; nor shall her chosen altar be neglected."

Despite the acceptance and honor of Lady Liberty, the faces of women remain 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 refashioned $10 dollar bills with the portraits of the inspiring women you may want to see on America's currency. Share your favorite bills to show you're #NotGoingBack.
