4.Rosa Parks
5.Sojourner Truth
6.Alice Paul
7.Patsy Mink
8.Margaret Sanger
9.Clara Barton
10.Shirley Chisholm
11.Rachel Carson
12.Frances Perkins
13.Betty Friedan
14.Barbara Jordan
15.Eleanor Roosevelt?
Women On 20s aims to compel historic change by convincing President Obama that NOW is the time to put a woman's face on our paper currency.
Why they are opting for 20 dollar bill there are two reasons for this.
1. Andrew Jackson was celebrated for his military prowess, for founding the Democratic party and for his simpatico with the common man. But as the seventh president of the United States, he also helped gain Congressional passage of the "Indian Removal Act of 1830" that drove Native American tribes of the Southeastern United States off their resource-rich land and into Oklahoma to make room for white European settlers. Commonly known as the Trail of Tears, the mass relocation of Indians resulted in the deaths of thousands from exposure, disease and starvation during the westward migration. Not okay.
2. Some argue that because Jackson was a fierce opponent of the central banking system and favored gold and silver coin or "hard money" over paper currency, he is an ironic choice for immortalization on our money. 
Last year, when a little girl asked President Obama why there weren't any women on U.S. currency and provided a list of good candidates, he said adding a woman was a “pretty good idea.” Afterall President obama is going to take the decision
