The Famous Five removed from our $50 Bill

Shameful!  We need more signs and symbols of “Women’s Rights are Human Rights,” not fewer.

With the announcement today of the new plastic $50 bill, the pictures of the Famous Five and of Therese Casgrain as well as the quote from the UN International Declaration of Human Rights will no longer appear on the back of the bill. The front of the new note features a portrait of Sir William Lyon Mackenzie King, while the back depicts the Arctic research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen.
