Women on 20s aims to put a feminine face on a bill

President Andrew Jackson could be on his way off of the $20 bill.

Women on 20s, a nonprofit organization, is looking to replace Jackson with a historical female figure, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. "The goal is to get it done, but it's not only about that. It's about raising awareness and making sure people get to know these women," Susan Ades Stone, the organization's director, told the newspaper.

The nonprofit has listed 15 women it would like to see replace Jackson, including Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman and Alice Paul, a leader in the U.S. women's suffrage movement, its website said. "These candidates were chosen from a field of 30 through a vigorous survey process involving more than a dozen women's historians and academicians," it said.

Women on 20s also wants a new face on the $20 bill because the year 2020 will mark 100 years since women were given the right to vote, the newspaper said.

Nevertheless, raising awareness about these women might not be the organization's only endgame, the report added. Jackson, the seventh U.S. president, authorized and enforced the Indian Removal Act of 1830, a law that stripped Native Americans from their lands.

The nonprofit did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
