Harriet Tubman (1822 March 10, 1913)
"Harriet Tubman would be my pick. Born into slavery, freer of others enslaved, leader of military expeditions and advocate for women's suffrage, her image on the $10 would remind us of her courage during our country's darkest time and provide us with inspiration to forge ahead." Jill Castilla, President and CEO, Citizens Bank of Edmond
Maggie Lena Walker (July 15, 1864 Dec. 15, 1934)
Walker, the first female bank CEO, was the choice of Fifth Third Bank's Michelle Van Dyke and the Maryland Bankers Association's Kathleen Murphy. Walker was a champion for women and African-Americans, and later in life, disabled by paralysis, she became an outspoken advocate for people with disabilities.
Abigail Adams (Nov. 22, 1744 - Oct. 28, 1818)
"I'd like to see a Founding Mother. I'd vote for Abigail Adams. She was brilliant and knew her 'place' as an active partner and adviser to her husband. To her credit, her detractors called her 'Mrs. President.' And I like the irony of her replacing Hamilton as the main image on the bill, given his role in defeating her husband's reelection." Sheila Bair, former Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chair
