If it’s to be a woman, my suggestion … call it the Mount Rushmore rule, to avoid the equivalent of putting the second string POTUS Teddy Roosevelt up there with first stringers Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson … is that no one alive after June 1915 be considered. This includes all the present suggestions.
If a woman isn’t considered remarkable 100 years after her death she doesn’t belong on the currency.
