Mirabal Sisters

MirbalSisters$small  I recently wrote about visiting the museum in the Dominican Republic dedicated to the Mirabal sisters, fighters in the resistance against the dictator Trujillo. I saved a 200 peso with this powerful portrait of them–Patria, Minerva, Maria Teresa.  Certainly U.S. bills could use female faces! Who would you like to see depicted? (Note: Martha Washington and Pocahontas briefly appeared on a U.S. bill in the 1800s.)
