Barbara Ortiz Howard, Women On 20s

Do you remember the $1 coins featuring Susan B. Anthony? That coin is now out of print-- and we've never had a woman on our paper currency. Barbara Ortiz Howard has taken issue with this and formed an organization called Women on 20s to advocate for a woman on our $20 bill. They petitioned President Obama and met with Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew and Treasurer Rosie Rios to ensure that their voices were heard--and that "a woman's place is on the money." She shares what happened next in this conversation. Listen to our conversation on iTunes or NPR One.
