The new Canadian $10 Bill

Canada is finally putting a woman on the front of a bank note (other than the Queen, of course). The first will be Viola Desmond, who will replace Sir John A. MacDonald.

Asked by one young student why more women couldn’t have been represented on money, Morneau said it was important to pick just one single woman so their story will be remembered, and serve as an inspiration to all.”

An excellent article written earlier this year explains why that’s a bit of a silly answer. There’s bigger fish to fry though, and more women should appear on currency in the coming years.
