The Wall Street Journal reports that for the first time, in more than a century, a woman’s face will appear on an American bill.

The Treasury Department announced Wednesday it will replace the main image of its own founder, Alexander Hamilton, on the $10 bill, with a woman who has yet to be determined. The identity of the female will be announced later this year, says Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. Mr. Hamilton will remain on the bill in a diminished way.

The currency will be unveiled in 2020, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. The last woman to appear on a bill was Martha Washington in the late 19th century.

Mr. Lew said the $10 bill is one of the most frequently used bills, more so than the $20 bill, which also has sophisticated security features.
