Woman will not be face of $10 until at least next year

The face of the $10 bill will not change until at least 2016, according to the Treasury Department.
Since March, there has been a movement to put a female’s face on currency, starting with a push to put a woman on the $20.
In June, the Treasury Department announced a redesign of the $10 bill. Replacing Alexander Hamilton, who has been featured on the $10 bill since 1929, with a woman.
Up for the spot are abolitionist Harriet Tubman, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Civil Rights Pioneer Rosa Parks, Girl Scouts Founder Juliette Gordon Low and Humanitarian Helen Keller.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had originally planned to choose a new face by the end of 2015 but announced the redesign will not happen until at least 2016 because of an overwhelming response from the public.
