“If money go before, all ways do lie open.” – Merry Wives of Windsor

The US Treasury has announced remakes of the $20, $10, & $5 notes.  The addition of Harriet Tubman to the $20 has gotten the most press, but Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul to the $10, and Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King to the $5, are pretty big deals as well in my opinion.  Such recognition pushes open further the door to greater equality (and that door has some pretty rusty hinges at this point, it’s taken so long).  If you don’t know who Lucretia Mott, Marian Anderson, or any of those other people named are, you have just proved the point of why they need to be on the new notes.
