WHITE PLAINS, NY – When it comes to money, cash is king. Or in this case, queen. The group "Women on 20s" put together a campaign petitioning for President Obama to get a historic female on front of the $20 dollar bill.

Bye, bye Andrew Jackson.

More than 600,000 people have their idea of who would look best on the green. The winning vote? Harriet Tubman. Hey, it makes sense. She was only an abolitionist who helped lead folks to freedom.

Some of the other top nominees included Eleanor Roosevelt (who came in second), Rosa Parks, and Wilma Mankiller -- the first female Chief of the Cherokees.

The "Women on 20s" campaign started 10 weeks ago. It got national recognition and support from a lot of people, including a handful of celebrities.The group wants the President to push Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew to make then change before 2020 which just so happens to be the 100th Anniversary of women’s suffrage. The Prez is definitely aware of the campaign.

There’s no telling if this effort that redefines the term "equal pay" will actually happen. The one thing we do know is,  "girls are just as important as boys."
