Female finalists for the new $20 bill

The group Women On 20s has narrowed their finalists for the new face of the $20 bill down to four. The four women chosen from the previous 15 candidates include Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and a Native American chief Wilma Mankiller.

Mankiller, a Cherokee Chief, was added to the finalists to have a Native American woman in the running. She received the Medal of Freedom in 1998 and passed away in 2010.

Women On 20s hopes to have a woman on the face of the $20 dollar bill by the year 2020, the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment. Among the famous women who did not make the cut to the final four included Margaret Sanger and Susan B. Anthony.

You can vote for your favorite of the four at WomenOn20s.
