Last June, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that a woman would be featured on the $10 bill—but said that he wanted to get input from the public before making any final design decisions. The wait for more information is over: The Treasury Department announced that Harriet Tubman will be featured on the front of the $20 bill.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who is a known fan of the musical Hamilton, announced that the $10 bill will continue to feature Alexander Hamilton. He also said that five leaders of the women’s suffrage movement will appear on the back of the $10 bill: Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul. President Andrew Jackson, meanwhile, will appear on the back of the $20 bill. The reverse of the $5 bill will include Martin Luther King, Jr., Marian Anderson and Eleanor Roosevelt (Lincoln will continue to appear on the front).

The Twitter reactions to the news have been mainly positive:

Others feel that the gesture of putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill does little to rectify the past:

Secretary Lew said in an article published on Medium that, “We anticipate that final concept designs for the new $20, $10 and $5 notes will all be unveiled in 2020 in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.”
