Women on 20's (w/Barbara Ortiz Howard)

Description

Why aren't there any women on American paper money? Gaby talks to Barbara Ortiz Howard, the cofounder of the "Women on 20s" campaign, that successfully (or so we thought) lobbied the Treasury to replace slave trader Andrew Jackson with freedom fighter Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. They discuss Tubman's amazing life, the history of American currency, and the DIY options for getting rid of Jackson.https://www.womenon20s.org/  This episode is brought to you by History the Shequel on Stitcher Premium.
