Her’s Day Thursday

hersday thursday

We’ve been seeing a lot of support for women’s rights in the news lately. From Emma Watson’s speeches to Meryl Streep’s emphatic fist bump during Patricia Arquette’s Oscar acceptance to Reese Witherspoon’s #AskHerMore campaign, we see celebrities bringing the female fight to the forefront.

Another cause that’s gaining steam is the “Women on 20’s” campaign. A non-profit group has compiled a list of women they would like to see replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill in time for the 100th anniversary (the year 2020) of the Constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote.

Over 256K votes have been cast since mid-March and the list has been trimmed to four contenders: Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and Wilma Mankiller. The group hopes to garner enough public support to push this through to the President. Help out by casting a vote for your favorite lady here! Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. ET on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2015, so get to it!

Personally, I’d LOVE to see Wilma Mankiller on the $20 bill! But I’m a little partial to a fellow Okie! Go vote, people!
