A Woman Will Appear on the $10 Bill for the First Time Ever

It's about time.

The U.S. Treasury Department plans to select a woman as the new face of the $10 bill!, according to USA Today. As for who will be on it, the department hasn't made a decision on that yet, but, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said they want to see who the public thinks would be the best choice and go with that.

To make that happen, the agency is going to launch a website and get feedback using the #TheNew10 hashtag on Twitter. But, there is a twist. According to Slate, Federal law states that no living person can appear on U.S. currency, so that means Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, Elizabeth Holmes (youngest female billionaire) and first female Supreme Court judge Sandra Day O' Connor just don't have a shot (sorry, girl).

So far, Harriet Tubman and Helen Keller are a couple of the names that are getting tossed around. Regardless of who is chosen, we won't actually see the new bill until 2020. But, that doesn't mean we can't get excited about it now, though. Next up...a female president? Just sayin'.
