It’s happening. After 100 years of “equality” us lady-folk are finally getting some recognition. On Wednesday, the US Treasury Department announced that a woman is going to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill. A petition had been circling for awhile to kick Andrew Jackson off of the $20 bill (you know, because he was kind of a dick) but according to Jack Lew, the big man behind this decision, the $10 bill is the next one in line for a makeover.
Still, we’ll take what we can get.
The note will be put in circulation starting in 2020, which is the 100-year anniversary of our feminine right to vote. Thanks, guys. The only question left is, who the hell will take over Alex’s spot? Right now the Treasury Department has narrowed it down to four women: Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and Mankiller (a native American woman with a kick ass name). Which are all fine choices. But let’s be real. Those picks don’t really suit our generation. Sure, they were amazing women in history, but like, did they even Instagram? Contour? Filter? No, no, and no. Since Lew announced that he’ll be taking the public’s opinion into consideration when making this decision, I figured I would submit a list a bit more, millennially appropriate. Because honestly, we’re the ones spending the money on frivolous things, anyway.
I’m pretty sure I don’t even need to explain this one.
The queen of contouring. Always on fleek. Brimming with talent and skill. How could she not be chosen?
The most deserving of the Kardash Klan, she’d get it because let’s be real, she’s winning everything right now. Might as well throw some history-changing currency in the mix.
Hate them or love them, you can’t deny: who run the world? They do.
She’s already proven that she looks hot, no matter how old she gets. Her skin, style, and perfect hair will be able to stand the test of time.
6. Miley Cyrus
Sure, she’s a wild card, but she’d easily scare away any terrorists, haters, or Instagram followers with her…uh charming demeanor and lovely pictures.
7. Taylor Swift
As soon as you put her on a bill, you just know that Katy Perry will put out her own $10 bills so like, more money for us.
8. Katy Perry
If she could make it through 2007, she can make our doll-hairs get through anything (Writer’s note: please notice my tailor-made hair joke).
10. Ariana Grande
In case every other clichéd pop artist is taken.
Your move, US Treasury Department. Your move..
