Sofia, 9 year old, sent a letter to Obama about putting a woman on US currency. "Why don't women have coins or dollars bills with their faces on it?" ... The women's movement began in the late 19th century in this country and has gone through three waves. The first-wave feminism involved suffrage and political equality. The second-wave extended to social and cultural inequalities. The third-wave is continuing to address social issues such as women's reproductive rights and financial issues such as glass ceiling. Nevertheless the US lags far behind several other nations when it comes to recognizing female leaders on paper currency. At least 10 other nations have recognized female leaders on their banknotes including Syria, the Philippines, and Korea. Our experience and its byproduct our common sense is so much institutionalized that we often fail to question. Consider what you learned at school. For example, history tends to be told as a series of battles where men play all the roles. So many White men played important roles in US history but other groups did not? People know who the founding fathers are, but were there no founding mothers? Where the contributions and struggles of Native Americans and African Americans? What we learn at school is proven as truth in our daily transaction of money. Who do you see in dollar bills? The interaction with those symbols would create meaning that implies the white male supremacy. In the months since Sofia wrote to Obama, a campaign to put a woman on the $20 bill has gone viral. The W20 movement is hosting an online poll so the public can vote on which woman should replace Andrew Jackson. Almost 220,000 people have voted in the online poll so far. And Sofia, who is now in fourth grade, is a junior ambassador for the campaign.

The investigation centers on a project set up under a controversial U.S. immigration program known as EB-5 which allows foreign investors to obtain visas, and eventually Green Cards, if they invest at least $500,000 in projects that will create American jobs. As ABC News reported in February, an internal government review found that more than 30 EB-5 projects have come under criminal investigation, including the one set up by Col. Milbrath and a business partner, called Noble Outreach. (ABC)
