This past week, President Obama spoke at a major conference honoring women and their role in society today.
He was talking about the new change that will be coming, and how currency has been dominated by men. “We admire the men who shaped our country and rightfully so…Our country is not just all about the Benjamins—it’s about the Tubmans, too. We need all our young people to know that Clara Barton and Lucretia Mott and Sojourner Truth and Eleanor Roosevelt and Dorothy Height, those aren’t just for Women’s History Month. They’re the authors of our history, women who shaped their destiny.”
