Considered a pioneer in the women’s suffrage movement, Anthony was also an abolitionist and worker’s rights activist. Her efforts were integral in the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920 which granted women the right to vote. In the almost 100 years since, women are now treated as equals to men in every way with only minor issues such as unequal pay, discrimination in the workplace, sexual harassment, having to constantly fight to have legal control over their own bodies and being blamed and shamed when they are sexually assaulted. Other than that, they are considered perfectly equal. Anthony was honored briefly from1979-1981 and once again in 1999 when her portrait was placed on a $1 coin. This has many critics of the executive order asking why that wasn’t enough for women and why liberals insist ton waging a war on men.
As for whether the value of the new $20 bill will indeed be 23% less than face value we turn to the statement of South Carolina Republican State Senator Tom Corbin. During a legislative dinner Corbin gave his views on gender equality: “Well, you know God created man first,” he said. ”Then he took the rib out of man to make woman. And you know, a rib is a lesser cut of meat.” Given this wildly evolved view from someone who is clearly a rump roast himself, there will likely be many liberals lining up to trade their $15.40 for Corbin and Graham’s Susan B. Anthony $20s.
