For the first time in more than a century, U.S. paper currency will feature the face of a woman.The announcement follows a popular Internet and social media campaign, "Women On 20s," to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill in place of Andrew Jackson.But Lew said plans for the new bill began long before the campaign, with a decision made in 2013 to replace the $10 note. The last women featured on U.S. bills were Martha Washington, who appeared on the $1 silver certificate from 1891 to 1896, and Pocahontas, who appeared in a group photo on the $20 bill from 1865 to 1869 .
