The Bank of England has just announced that they will put the image of Jane Austen, one of my favorite authors, on the ten pound note. Austen’s books were a mainstay of my classroom because her stories resonated with my students in a meaningful way.One day soon I’d like to see the face of a woman on our nation’s paper currency.
NOTE: Someone correctly pointed out that women have been on non-commemorative coins in America (at least 3).  So this post was updated with the word “paper” in front of currency.
